Small House of Everything

Wangari Maatha, Kenyan enviromentalist and activist and the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, has died at age 71 from ovarian cancer.  One of the most widely respected women in Africa, Maatha spoke to power courageously, making her a positive example for African women, for women in general, and for the entire world -- regardless of gender.

She was a kick-ass woman and the world is lessened by her passing.
