How to involve feminists in the animal rights movement
18 th August
10:50 - 11:35
The animal movement needs all the allies it can get. Bringing more people into the movement is crucial, and one of the strategies of doing this can be to connect movements, and involve those people who are already activists in other areas and whose talent and expertise would be useful for animals. The feminist movement has many of the same values and goals as the animal rights movement, just like the position of women in society mirrors that of animals. Interconnecting feminism and animal rights brings benefits to both movements. This presentation will show how I convince Polish feminists that fighting for animal rights is in their best interest. It will also show that the animal rights movement needs more feminism and how this can be done.
