Two South African women win the Goldman
Environmental Prize
Makoma Lekalakala and Liz McDaid led a legal battle
against two of the world’s most powerful men – their
deposed leader Jacob Zuma and the Russian president,
Vladimir Putin. They had been tipped off by the Russian
ecological group Ecodefense that there was a secret multibillion-dollar deal to buy nuclear
power stations from Russia. They knew the risks involved in confronting their president, the
electricity company and the interests of a foreign power, and were warned that they could face
violence. But both had fought against apartheid in the 80s, an experience that left them
relatively fearless. Finally, after a fve-year legal battle, the high court outlawed the project and
declared it unconstitutional: a landmark legal victory that protects South Africa from nuclear
expansion and production of radioactive waste.

In May this year, Ireland voted overwhelmingly for a woman’s
right to abortion, with more than 66% of voters saying ‘yes’.
It is time to say ‘thank you’ to Britain. Abortion had been illegal in Ireland since 1861, and in 1983, “We should have been saying it all along. pro-life activists – who feared this could be changed –
