Antispecism and feminisms round table

  • Day: January 24, 2019
  • Time: 19h
  • Space: Auditori
  • Free activity

Linked to the complementary activities of the exhibition “Them and us” we organized a round table on sexism and speciesism. Both are forms of discrimination manifested in oppressive patterns of hierarchy and domination. Morally it has been considered that the ability to suffer and enjoy the lives of human and non-human animals are equal. Therefore, the feminist struggle for equality and against discrimination is also necessarily antispecies. The debate will be attended by Ruth Toledano, animal rights activist, editor of the antiespecista blog El caballo de Nietzsche, on and creator and promoter of Animal Capital, a project of art, culture and animalism; the teacher and activist Estela Díaz and the journalist Carme Buades who will act as moderator.
