Defiant Daughters: 21 Women on Art, Activism, Animals, and the Sexual Politics of Meat [Lantern Books, 2013] is an anthology that pays tribute to the work of Carol J. Adams and her seminal book, The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory. Though The Sexual Politics of Meat was published more than two decades ago, as the 21 personal stories in Defiant Daughters perfectly illustrate, and as the publisher states, “the impact of this provocative text on women’s lives continues to this day, and is as diverse as it is revelatory.”
Our Hen House co-founder, Jasmin Singer, is a contributor to this anthology, with her chapter “Found Art, Found Hope.” And we are very excited that the royalties of Defiant Daughters are benefiting Our Hen House! (As a bonus, read an excerpt of Jasmin’s chapter, “Found Art, Found Hope,” listen to an audio excerpt, or watch a short video interview with her in which she discusses the book. You can also check out a written interview with Jasmin as it appeared in The Huffington Post, and read the unabridged interview which we published on Our Hen House — half of which is available to everyone, and half of which is available to flock members only.)
Our Hen House is pleased to be able to offer you a signed copy of this extremely important book, as well as a copy of the DVD Vegucated, in exchange for becoming a member of the Our Hen House flock. You can join the flock by becoming a monthly supporter of Our Hen House at the $10 or more level, or by making a one-time donation of $100 or more (which will get you a one-year membership).
