Lantern Books back in the '00s. The company had published her first book and was all abuzz when she won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. (You can see a video about Lantern and Wangari Maathai's relationship here.) Since her passing, I'm reminded of what a great source of inspiration her legacy provides. Maathai taught women to plant trees in order to save the environment, build community, and empower women with financial independence (among other things). Talk about a feminist green entrepreneur!
