Female Environmentalists Celebrated During Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month, and HuffPost Green is honoring female environmentalists that have helped defend the planet.

These women's accomplishments include the national ban of the pesticide DDT, the protection of primates like chimpanzees and gorillas and the fight for both oceans and forests around the globe.

From authors to advocates, actresses and explorers, these women have dedicated their lives -- and sometimes given them -- for the good of the earth.
