We begin with an animated clip featuring Carol J Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat, answering the question “”which came first - your feminism or your veganism?” What follows is a short (3 & 1/2 minute) biographical journey showing how and when these two intersected and became grist for this renowned book, The Sexual Politics of Meat, as well as her many others.
Following is a presentation by the author, scholar, activist of her “Sexual Politics of Meat Slide Show” to a packed auditorium at NYU. With humor and wisdom, Adams presents posters and video advertisements that underscore her “critical feminist vegetarian” theories, exploring myths for example that men need meat, that that’s how the “west was won” and examining why men especially white men, need to constantly renew their “man cards” by consuming dead animals. And finally, there is a short Question and Answer period.
Visually rich and illuminating, with plenty of resources for viewers stimulated to dig into this topic further. Seamlessly edited, with music, subtitles and smooth transitions.
