You are expected to prepare a 1250/3-4 page review that answers the following questions. You can also include other relevant observations as long as they do not amount to just describing what you read in the book. The point of this assignment is to engage with broader issues presented in the book, not to summarize it. Remember that there are no “right” or “wrong” answers to these questions but we do expect thoughtful, well-argued and well-reasoned responses. You are expected to cite at least ONE additional course reading, with reasonable depth and detail, to support your answer to at least one of the following questions.
You have the option of writing this assignment in pairs or independently. If you write in pairs, you must make reference to TWO additional course readings (so, Unbowed plus two others). Your partner must be from the same tutorial/TA.
1. Why did large numbers of women participate in the Green Belt Movement? What are some of the ways in which women’s participation helped and hurt the movement?
2. “Environmental movements are also always political movements.” Do you agree with this statement? Discuss your response with reference to the Green Belt Movement.
3. What does this biography tell you about the links between environmental destruction and human conflict? Does one lead to the other?
4. Wangari Maathai died in 2011 but the Green Belt Movement has spread around the world today (http://www.greenbeltmovement.org/). How can we contribute to keeping her legacy and the movement alive?
Please DO NOT waste space by repeating the questions in your review. Please write direct responses to the questions (i.e 1,2,3,4 in separate paragraphs).
Provide an in-text citation with page number for the book (Unbowed) if you are citing a specific quotation or passage. Otherwise, you don’t need to cite the source if you are just referencing the book but you won’t lose marks if you do. Cite your additional course reading, or other additional resources, both in-text and with a list of references in MLA or APA format. Unbowed should appear in your reference list/bibliography.
