"Sexism in the Animal Rights Movement is not new—it’s part of our culture and has been in the movement since women first started working to protect animals! Male privilege and white privilege are connected with human privilege—they are connected with the problem of animal abuse. We need to recognize these interconnections and make the necessary changes in our lives if we want to bring change. Going vegan is critical, but we also have to root out sexism, racism, and other forms of oppression to welcome a world of peace." Lisa Kemmerer

In this podcast, psychologist Melissa Farley explains her understanding of the intimately connected exploitation of women and exploitation of the earth. Multinational corporations and governments designate so-called "sacrifice zones" for resource extraction and in the process they exploit both men and women. Poor men are exploited for their labor, and women are provided to pacify them after what is usually miserable and dangerous labor. Eventually, when the resources are depleted or the land is destroyed, or environmentalists protest, and the resource extraction stops, the sex trade nonetheless continues. In sexist cultures where women can't make enough to survive, prostitution becomes entrenched. Melissa Farley quotes Lisa Brunner, White Earth Ojibwe at the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, and anthropologist Peggy Reeves Sanday.
