    1. I have a lot of thoughts swirling around in my head right now, but mostly I just want to sleep, so I'll save reviewing this for later. For now: I think animal advocates should read this to see "the oppression of animals as a part of a broad, intersecting web of inequality that encompasses gender, race, class, and environmental concerns."

    2. The best book overall!! A great source for my thesis!!!! One of the few animal rights literature I read cover to cover! Not just because of my paper either! A well researched & arguments outlining the animals rights/liberation's history how it connects with animals, women & nature as one!!!! The impact of PETA's controversial campaign tactics & why women are for or against the scandalous "Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" advertisement!!
