Coetzee" "For twenty years, The Sexual Politics of Meat has inspired, engaged, and challenged readers.

Animals and women : feminist theoretical explorations( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV> Animals and Women is a collection of pioneering essays that explores the theoretical connections between feminism and animal defense. Offering a feminist perspective on the status of animals, this unique volume argues persuasively that both the social construction and oppressions of women are inextricably connected to the ways in which we comprehend and abuse other species. Furthermore, it demonstrates that such a focus does not distract from the struggle for women & rsquo;s rights, but rather contributes to it. This wide-ranging multidisciplinary anthology presents original material from scholars in a variety of fields, as well as a rare, early article by Virginia Woolf. Exploring the leading edge of the species/gender boundary, it addresses such issues as the relationship between abortion rights and animal rights, the connection between woman-battering and animal abuse, and the speciesist basis for much sexist language. Also considered are the ways in which animals have been regarded by science, literature, and the environmentalist movement. A striking meditation on women and wolves is presented, as is an examination of sexual harassment and the taxonomy of hunters and hunting. Finally, this compelling collection suggests that the subordination and degradation of women is a prototype for other forms of abuse, and that to deny this connection is to participate in the continued mistreatment of animals and women. </div>
The pornography of meat by Carol J Adams( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does someone become a piece of meat? Carol J. Adams answers this question in this provocative book by uncovering hidden meanings in the culture around us. From advertisements to T-shirts, from billboards to menus, from matchbook covers to comics, images of women and animals are merged - with devastating consequences." "Like The Sexual Politics of Meat, which has been published in two editions, The Pornography of Meat uncovers startling connections: why pornography demonstrates such a fascination with slaughtering and hunting; fixations on women's body parts expressed through ads for the breasts, legs, and thighs of chickens and turkeys; animals to be eaten presented in seductive poses and sexy clothing; back-entry poses in pornography, implying that women - especially women of color - are like animals: insatiable; how meat advertising draws on X-rated images; and why at least one prominent animal-rights group is actually "in bed" with pornographers." "With more than two hundred illustrations, this book establishes why Adams's slide show, upon which The Pornography of Meat is based, is so popular on college campuses and is reviled by the groups she takes on with insight and passion. From the rise of chain steakhouses to the language of the hunt, from the halls of government to the practice of artificial insemination on farm animals, The Pornography of Meat shows exactly how harm to others parades as fun."--Jacket
