Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice
U. of Illinois Press, 2011

Sister Species
addresses interconnections between speciesism, sexism, racism, and homophobia, clarifying why social justice activists in the twenty-first century must identify and challenge these various intersecting forms of oppression simultaneously.  Through courageous, gripping personal narratives from women who have personally explored links of oppression between human beings and nonhuman animals, Sister Species examines exploitative enterprises such as cockfighting, factory farming, vivisection, and the bushmeat trade. Sister Species demonstrates with painful clarity why every activist must be on board with other social justice concerns.

About the Author:

Lisa Kemmerer is a philosopher-activist dedicated to working against oppression, whether on behalf of the environment, nonhuman animals, or disempowered human beings. Her books include In Search of Consistency: Ethics and Animals; Animals and World Religions; Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice; Call to Compassion: Reflections on Animal Advocacy; Speaking Up for Animals: An Anthology of Women's Voices; and Primate People: Saving Nonhuman Primates through Education, Advocacy, and Sanctuary. Kemmerer has hiked, biked, kayaked, backpacked, and traveled widely, and is currently associate professor of philosophy and religions at Montana State University Billings.

Review:

"If you desire to be a stronger, more confident advocate and to feel less alone, despairing, and frustrated in pursuit of justice for animals, if you care about what animals are going through and about animals themselves. . .  Sister Species is for you."  Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns

"This book will change your way of thinking about animals who don't happen to be human." The Book Garden Review

"...having read Sister Species, I see... the intersection of oppressions in a culture whose various appetites demand young, firm flesh and large breasts in more than one species." Kathleen Stachowski, Other Nations (OtherNationsJustice.org)

 "A picture is worth a thousand words, and the cover of Lisa Kemmerer's anthology Sister Species is a doozy. . . . It's an eye-grabbing, opinion-provoking cover, and a fairly accurate preparation for the content featured in Sister Species.--Bitch

"Animal lovers will find this of clear interest, while those investigating women's lives will likely be surprised and intrigued by the issues it raises."--Booklist

 

  "Takes us on a unique journey of thought and self-discovery."--Journal for Critical Animals Studies

"Kemmerer provides a space to embrace narrative and the unique experiences of women doing social justice work. . . . The growing discourse of ecofeminists and women animal advocates needs a larger library of texts like these."--Feminist Formations
 



 "Prompt[s] us to recognize that attention to nature and animals should be at the forefront of any feminist agenda."--SIGNS

"This is a book worth having on a personal and academic bookshelf to return to over and over again to remind ourselves that all species human and non-human deserve and need our protection and respect."--Gender and Education

Descrizione libro University of Illinois Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice addresses interconnections between speciesism, sexism, racism, and homophobia, clarifying why social justice activists in the twenty-first century must challenge intersecting forms of oppression. This anthology presents bold and gripping--sometimes horrifying--personal narratives from fourteen activists who have personally explored links of oppression between humans and animals, including such exploitative enterprises as cockfighting, factory farming, vivisection, and the bushmeat trade. Sister Species asks readers to rethink how they view others, how they affect animals with their daily choices, and how they might bring change for all who are abused. These essays remind readers that women have always been important to social justice and animal advocacy, and they urge each of us to recognize the links that continue to bind all oppressed individuals. The astonishing honesty of these contributors demonstrates with painful clarity why every woman should be an animal activist and why every animal activist should be a feminist. Contributors are Carol J. Adams, Tara Sophia Bahna-James, Karen Davis, Elizabeth Jane Farians, Hope Ferdowsian, Linda Fisher, Twyla Fran u00e7ois, Christine Garcia, A. Breeze Harper, Sangamithra Iyer, Pattrice Jones, Lisa Kemmerer, Allison Lance, Ingrid Newkirk, Lauren Ornelas, and Miyun Park. Codice libro della libreria AAC9780252078118
