Some of you may have known Martii, a dedicated raw-foodist who hosted several events in her home. I wanted to share this news with you that I received from another list.
With sadness, Marti Kheel, has passed away on 11/19 at age 63. I am passing along the info as I heard about it today; I don't have any other info. Marti was a BA-sappho subscriber, activist, author, vegan, friend. She was extremely kind-hearted and a gentle being. She was very interested in the effects of cell phones, towers and smart meters on people's health.
From her website:
Marti Kheel is a prominent writer and activist in the areas of ecofeminism, animal advocacy, and environmental ethics and author of the recently published Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective. Her articles have been widely published in journals and anthologies both within the United States and abroad.
In her ground-breaking book, Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective, Marti
Kheel explores the underlying worldview of nature ethics, offering an alternative ecofeminist approach. Seeking to heal the divisions between the seemingly disparate movements and philosophies of feminism, animal advocacy, environmental ethics, and holistic health, Kheel proposes an ecofeminist philosophy that underscores the importance of empathy and care for individual beings as well as larger wholes.
