Angel Flinn, Director of Outreach
for Gentle World, explores the issues that seem to link feminism to
veganism. The exploitation of the female reproductive system is a
crucial aspect that allows the mass production of animals raised for
food. For example, the reality of dairy production, which is one of
the most abusive systems that have ever existed in the animal-based
agriculture system, should prompt anyone --women especially-- to
stop supporting this industry.
Breeding Slavery: Why Veganism Should Be Considered a Feminist Issue
Female animals raised for food are the most exploited
animals in the industry. They have the amazing gift of being able to
give birth and nurture their infants. What we do to these animals is
beyond cruel: we impregnate them artificially, steal their milk or
eggs, and also steal their babies; we then kill them after they are
no longer of use. No love, no mercy, no justice.
