Sexism In Animal Rights

I’d been considering writing a fabulous “I’m back!” post, easing myself gently into the blogging world once more. However, after viewing the following, a joint statement written & signed by a group of Abolitionist Feminists for International Women’s Day, I decided it was time to dust off the blog.

Sexism In Animal Rights : An Abolitionist Vegan Perspective

This statement articulates beautifully what I feel to be one of the most frustrating arguments used by many Animal Welfare activists. I believe that the exploitation of some in the name of freedom for others is an illogical and dangerous argument. Visit the NZ Vegan Podcast Blog for links to the written text & the blogs of the statement’s authors.

  1. Missed you and your blog! This is an incredible statement..I just posted it on the Boston Vegan Association’s forum as recently we were having an intense discuss about feminism and sexism after a member posted asking for everyone to vote for her in PETA’s “sexiest vegan” contest. Thanks for posting this!! Hugs from Cambridge!
