This episode features Lara Drew and Dan Kidby from Veganarchy on their article ‘The lines are being drawn, the case for a divided animal movement’. Also covered in the discussion is: promoting intersectional animal activism that focuses on ending all forms of oppression rather than single issue animal activism that ignores or sometimes even contributes to human oppression; the origins of the term “intersectionality” – an article by Kimberle Crenshaw; the book The Dreaded Comparison: Human and Animal Slavery; and personalised, polemic writing versus formal, “objective” writing.
