Feminism and Animals Rights

3 years ago by officialpeta, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatm

PETA's Ingrid Newkirk discusses the intersection of women's rights, animal rights, and the fight for equality for all.

Supporters of animal rights recognize that animals have an inherent worth—a value completely separate from their usefulness to humans. We believe that every creature with a will to live has a right to live free from exploitation and suffering. Animal rights is not just a philosophy—it's a social movement that challenges society's traditional view that all nonhuman animals exist for human use. As Ingrid Newkirk, PETA's president and co-founder, has said, "When it comes to pain, love, joy, loneliness, and fear, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. Each one values his or her life and fights the knife."
