Book Group: The Sexual Politics of Meat by Carol Adams

Join us as we discuss Carol Adams' influential work, The Sexual Politics of Meat. This is a classic and should definitely be on the reading list of anyone interested in animal rights, women's rights, and the intersection of the two.

To order your copy through Ethique Nouveau, Minnesota's only 100% vegan store, please contact them at[masked] or [masked].


-from Amazon: "Many cultures equate meat-eating with virility, and in some societies women offer men the "best" (i.e., bloodiest) food at the expense of their own nutritional needs. Building upon these observations, feminist activist Adams detects intimate links between the slaughter of animals and violence directed against women. She ties the prevalence of a carnivorous diet to patriarchal attitudes, such as the idea that the end justifies the means, and the objectification of others. In Frankenstein , Mary Shelley made her Creature a vegetarian, a point Adams relates to the Romantics' radical politics and to visionary novels by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Dorothy Bryant and others. Adams, who teaches at Perkins School of Theology, Dallas, sketches the alliance of vegetarianism and feminism in antivivisection activism, the suffrage movement and 20th-century pacifism. Her original, provocative book makes a major contribution to the debate on animal rights."

    I won't be able to make it today. I live in Burnsville and don't want to take any risks driving too far today. Hopefully there will be another book club in the near future!

    Hey, Zoe. The book is for sure an interesting read, I recommend it (obviously, since I'm leading a discussion on it). You should definitely think about coming to said discussion, I'm sure you have a lot to contribute!
