the sexual politics of meat by carol j adams“Basically, for as long as I have been an adult, I have been an advocate, an activist, someone trying to figure out how do we transform this d*#! world that is built on inequality.” Carol J. Adams

The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory explores the relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense, and literary theory. A major contribution to the debate on animal rights.

Carol J. Adams examines the historical, gender, race, and class implications of meat culture, and makes the links between the practice of butchering/eating animals and the maintenance of male dominance.

The Sexual Politics of Meat first appeared in l990 and triggered dramatic international media coverage. A British Edition was published immediately. Full page articles were written about it in Australian and Dutch newspapers. Reviews appeared in Italy, Norway, Great Britain and the U.S. The Sexual Politics of Meat has been translated into Japanese, Korean, Chinese, German, and Portuguese. ISBN 978-1441173287.

carol j adams author of the politics of meatCarol J. Adams worked to bring women’s studies courses to the University of Rochester in the early 1970s, and struggled to find a way to express feminist ideas in her papers for college. She protested the Vietnam War, did field work at the New Haven Women’s Liberation Center and in an abortion clinic at Yale Medical School where she was the day Roe v. Wade was announced by the Supreme Court.

In l974, she had the opportunity to dress up as Susan B. Anthony and read the speech she gave at the Liberty Bell in 1876. Carol was moved by the sense of historical connection to feminist activists from the past, like Anthony and Stanton, and how we were still working to liberate women from inequality. During the late 70s and through most of the 80s, she was Executive Director of the Chautauqua County Rural Ministry, Inc., in Dunkirk, New York, an advocacy and service not-for-profit agency addressing issues of poverty, racism, and sexism.

With her partner, she started a Hotline for Battered Women. She served as Chairperson of the Housing Committee of the New York Governor’s Commission on Domestic Violence, co-ordinated a suit against a city for racism in its housing practices. Then she began writing what became The Sexual Politics of Meat.

Carol lives near Dallas with her partner and their dog Holly, and continues her feminist-vegan writing.
