HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL – Feb. 4, 2017 – SHEROES & HEROES: ACTIVISTS
Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster
Carol J. Adams (born 1951) is an American writer, feminist, and animal rights advocate. She is the author of several books, including The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory (1990) and The Pornography of Meat (2004), focusing in particular on what she argues are the links between the oppression of women and that of non-human animals.
Adams has published around 100 articles or entries in journals, books, magazines, and encyclopedias on vegetarianism, animal rights, domestic violence, and sexual abuse. She was inducted into the Animal Rights Hall of Fame in 2011.
Today’s Action: Are you vegetarian? If not, try giving up eating animal products for just one day. If you are already vegetarian, think about the reasons you decided to stop eating animals.
Today’s Sharing: Tell us about your experiences with vegetarianism? Share your stories with us on the Holy Heretic Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine.
