Vandana Shiva (Feature Interview)
The news magazine, Asiaweek, calls Vandana Shiva one of the five most powerful communicators in Asia. The British newspaper, The Guardian, named her one of the top female activists and campaigners. Vandana Shiva is based in New Delhi.
She's trained as a physicist, but she has made her mark as an agricultural researcher, environmental activist and an advocate for women's rights. Twenty five years ago she started something called "Navdanya" a global movement to protect the rights of farmers to save seeds.
Recently, Vanada Shiva left her home in India to pick up an Honorary doctorate from one of her old schools, the University of Guelph. She was in our Toronto studio.
