Women and the Animal Rights Movement

Animal rights is one of the fastest growing social movements today. Women greatly outnumber men as activists, yet surprisingly, little has been written about the importance and impact of gender on the movement.

Recommends it for: activists/advocates (not just of animal rights, but other social justice movements as well)

I have a lot of thoughts swirling around in my head right now, but mostly I just want to sleep, so I'll save reviewing this for later. For now: I think animal advocates should read this to see "the oppression of animals as a part of a broad, intersecting web of inequality that encompasses gender, race, class, and environmental concerns."

The best book overall!! A great source for my thesis!!!! One of the few animal rights literature I read cover to cover! Not just because of my paper either! A well researched & arguments outlining the animals rights/liberation's history how it connects with animals, women & nature as one!!!! The impact of PETA's controversial campaign tactics & why women are for or against the scandalous "Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" advertisement!!

Not what I was looking for tbh but it's an interesting sociological study. It's incredible what some animal activists will say - how openly racist and homophobic some of them are. One of them actually says: 'I haven't seen any factory farms for gays lately.'
