Our Hen House co-founder and Executive Director Jasmin Singer came to animal rights by way of LGBT rights, and that circuitous foray into this movement has informed her activism for good. As a feminist who cannot be trusted to keep her mouth shut when she probably should (she likes to call this her “charm”), Jasmin’s brassiness, sentimentality, and keen appreciation of the interconnections between social justice movements all play a leading role in this column. Deftly exploring everything from the unsettling social implications of her recent 100-pound weight loss, to her thoughts on how to change the world for animals in an accessible, personal, and effective way, Jasmin’s column is part memoir and part advocacy manifesto.
