Should We Eat Meat?

Many feminists over the years have drawn parallels between the animal rights movement & the women’s rights movement – recognising that our bodies have been owned, used and discussed in similar ways – particularly in dairy and poultry farming.

Harvesting the unfertilised eggs of hens or the breast milk of cows has a gendered aspect that may be uncomfortable for some – to the point where veganism seems the only morally justifiable option for those of us who profess to be feminists. Think, for instance, of the way the natural order has been invoked by both men & meat eaters to keep us all in our ‘place’.

However, going completely meat and animal produce free can be daunting. One small solution is Meat Free Mondays – one day a week without meat. It doesn’t have to be Mondays of course, but if you feel sympathy for our sisters of other species it might be a place to start.
