In 1977 Wangari Maathai created the Green Belt Movement. In 2017 I created these sculptural silver earrings to honor Wangari for her dedication to the environment and the women’s movement. 

In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now. – Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai (1940 – 2011) – Kenyan-born environmental, political, and women’s rights activist. Wangari was the first woman in East Africa to earn a doctorate degree. In 1977 she launched The Green Belt Movement to reforest the country and aid women in need of income. The movement is responsible for over 30 million trees being planted and about 30,000 women gaining new skills and opportunities. 

You cannot protect the environment unless you empower people, you inform them, and you help them understand that these resources are their own, that they must protect them. – Wangari Matthai

Wangari Matthai was the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize her contribution to sustainable development, democracy, and peace.

No matter who or where we are, or what our capabilities, we are called to do the best we can. – Wangari Maathai
