FEMINIST AUTHOR TO CHALLENGE SEXISM, MEAT INDUSTRY IN HOUSTON
Internationally recognized feminist author Carol Adams will travel to
Houston July 28th to take on the exploitation of women in the American meat
and restaurant industries.
Adams book, The Sexual Politics of Meat, and her most recent book, "The
Pornography of Meat," have received massive critical acclaim for pioneering
the connection between the sexualization of animals for consumption and the
degradation of women.
Adams, touring universities across the nation, brings with her a
cutting-edge presentation based on The Sexual Politics of Meat, designed to
challenge the contemporary patriarchal attitudes toward the consumption of
meat and the dehumanization of women.
