Wangari Maathai was not only an amazing woman who fought tooth and nail to protect the environment. She was also a woman that inspired cultural and tribal women to aspire to more than what our male dominated culture offers us. She searched for a higher education, a higher purpose and a world outside of our own. She fought corruption and powerful men to protect the forests and the nature that depended on it. She believed in herself even when everyone else didn’t. She inspires the young ladies to know their self worth and fight for their place in this world.
We honor her, her achievements and her memory as the first in our Gladiatrix series. She was a bold, brave and strong woman.
She inspires young women and men all over the world that love nature and the environment and are willing to make great sacrifices to protect it.
