    • SISTER SPECIES continues the tradition pioneered by authors such as Carol J. Adams in tying animal rights advocacy in with broader social justice causes such as feminism. This volume collects a diverse collection of voices from women involved in different aspects of the animal movement. Miyun Park works on behalf of farmed animals, investigating the practices of factory farms and encouraging members of the public to choose a vegan diet to reduce the number of animals who will suffer in food prod [...]

    • The first chapter of this book is absolutely astounding. To my knowledge, the first chapter is the most comprehensive, well written overview of species-inclusive intersectional anti-oppression theory I have yet read. I would highly recommend this book for the first chapter alone to anyone wanting to know how race, gender, sexual orientation, species, etc. all interact and how all systems of oppression work together and the history of intersectionality work. It makes no sense to struggle for huma [...]

    • A feminist view on animal advocacy? I certainly haven't heard about such an approach before. All the more reason for me to pick up Sister Species: Women, Animals And Social Justice to satisfy my curiosity.In her anthology Lisa A. Kemmerer introduces the reader at length to the topic of animal activism and its close connection to other forms of oppression such as sexism, racism, homophobia, etc. sharing a collection of essays focusing on animal ethics. These essays are as diverse as the women who [...]

    • Just to be clear: I disliked this book because of the execution, not the idea. In general, I'm in favor of any work that promotes equality for people and the humane treatment of animals.For starters, the introduction goes on forever and I never felt a personal connection with anything presented in [title: Sister Species] which makes me wonder who this book is even for. If Lisa A Kemmerer hopes to use this work to pursuade others to become advocates for social justice (as she sees it), Sister Spe [...]

    • I found out about this intriguing title through my Women's Studies class and college library. Years ago I had read an article about animal welfare that casually mentioned in a sentence that eating dairy products was harmful to animals, but the author of the article didn't elaborate as to WHY this was wrong. This book does that and explains how veganism, feminism and social justice are related.Ecofeminism is a termed that was invented in 1972 by a French author (14) and "focuses on interconnectio [...]

    • The lengthy introduction by the author over-introduces the content of the book. Most of the writers do not engage in an intersectional analysis of oppression, yet that is the focus of the introduction. For example, all of the authors are women, but each does not necessarily address sexism and speciesism as linked oppressions. Few discuss racism. Other oppressions (disablism, ageism, classism, and so on) are not addressed at all. Therefore, the introduction sets up hopes that are not met in the c [...]

    • An important, honest piece of writing; I am hopeful this link between nonhuman and human life (particularly that of the female experience) will continue to be explored and challenged. The essays each offered their own unique insight, however I found the introduction to be one of the most compelling pieces; it almost could have been the introduction to a much larger, academic work. At times I wonder if it "fit" the style and anecdotes of the latter portion of the book. In addition to Lisa Kemmere [...]

    • The essays I found particularly thought-provoking or moving:"fighting cocks" - pattrice jones"connections" - a. breeze harper"small small redemption" - sangamithra iyer"the art of truth-telling" - tara sophia bahna-james"from hunting grounds to chicken rights" - karen davis"are you waving at me?" by ingrid e. newkirk made me empathize with her, which is strange because I'm still not buying that she's a feminist. Her essay is filled with so much animal suffering--such a level of exposure that it [...]

    • I would agree with one of the previous reviewers that the introduction is as good as this book gets. The introduction is quite informative, especially for someone who is not familiar with intersectional approaches. But the rest of the book, sorry to say, was not insightful nor did I feel that it made true academic contributions to the animal ethics discourse. Most of the articles were incredibly short, under-researched, and did not allow time for thoughts and arguments to be completely developed [...]

    • I really like the premise of this book and the cultural and ethnic diversity of the contributors, although somehow it just wasn't as readable as I had expected. As a side note, I think the cover is smart but I really had to wonder why a vegan book would approve of utilising a chicken's corpse. Not sure if they bought the chicken and took the photo just for the cover but if they did it would certainly diverge from the animal care ethic.

    • This book contains 14 personal essays from various female activists. If you are someone who believes in women's rights and gender equality, this is an important book to read that links the treatment of female animals (hens for their eggs, cows for their milk, etc) to how female non-human animals are still marginalized and "used" for their various purposes today, reproductive or otherwise. Powerful stuff.

    • I really really wanted to like this book, because the issues are so important, and so many of the women featured are doing such important work; I greatly respect all of them. But unfortunately the quality and relevance of the writing varied greatly. I feel like it had the potential to be so much more.

    • This book was amazing. It opened my eyes to the connection between animal rights and women's rights.

    • Wonderful book for anyone involved in social justice movements.

    • Since I am very much feminism and animal rights driven this book was perfect for me to read after SExual Politics of Meat and Defiant Daughters.

    • One of the most eye-opening and inspiring books I have ever read.

    • AR advocates really need to find an inoffensive way of talking about racism and speciesism. 95% of the time they get it wrong.
