CAROL J. ADAMS

OPENING KEYNOTE:
TAKE OUT MISOGNY

Take out misogyny is concerned with the way misogyny, white supremacy, and attitudes toward animals interact through meat advertisements, stereotypes of meat eating, and animal agriculture’s dependence on female reproduction.  Misogyny enables not just the social oppression of women, but along with white supremacy, establishes a hierarchy of entitlement and privilege that is related to attitudes toward animals. To take out misogyny we must first know its reach.
