Women, Animals and Activism: A Call for Total Liberation

Thursday, December 1, 2016

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Whitby 121

Join Carol Glasser, sociology professor of MSU Mankato, for a discussion of the connections between the oppression of human women and non-human animals. These themes will be explored through examples such as intimate partner violence, cultural expectations surrounding food, and the use of sexist and anti-animal images in advertisements. The specific case of women and animals will be used as a springboard to discuss social justice issues more broadly and the links between different forms of oppression.

This event is presented by Advocating for Animals.
