Sajida Khan, of Durban, South Africa, dedicated her last years to fighting international corporations and local municipalities over the pollution and environmental degradation of her community, where one of the continent's biggest waste dumps was sited. Her battle suggests important and inspiring lessons for ecofeminist theory. climate change politics and science, and international feminist, anti-capitalist struggles. An edited interview with Khan conducted two years before she died in July, 2007, sets out many of her views on environmental justice and possible ways to create healthier livelihoods.
