“Get that tofu and smash patriarchy!” Our guest today the prolific author, feminist, and activist Carol Adams. She’s written numerous books on the intersections between feminism and food culture, but her 1990 The Sexual Politics of Meat broke ground on the cross between the oppression of women and animals. This episode covers the mistreatment of dairy cows, objectification of women and animals, white supremacy, naturalizing violence, and more. Adams’ theories are both eye-opening yet relatable, and you’ll walk away from this discussion with a new perspective on ethics.
