You know Melanie Joy?
She wrote the book "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows (http://www.carnism.org/2012-05-08-16-39-52/2012-05-08-16-51-25/35-why-we-love-dogs-eat-pigs-and-wear-cows)", as well as a great article on How Vegans Can Move Beyond the “Welfare-Abolition Debate” (http://www.onegreenplanet.org/animalsandnature/our-voices-our-movement-how-vegans-can-move-beyond-the-welfare-abolition-debate/).
She also coined the phrase carnism (http://carnism.org/) - so that the we have a word for the view that eating meat is normal, which was so institutionalised that we didn't even have a word for it!
Yeah, I'm a bit of a fan.
So I'm really excited to hear that she's speaking at the British Library in association with the Institute of Jainology (http://www.jainology.org/).
