FAR

Feminists for Animal Rights: An Ecofeminist Alliance

another fantastic resource: ‘“FAR” was founded in California in 1981 and became a nationwide organization in the following years, remaining active well into the 21st century. FAR’s major focus from its inception was on consciousness-raising– in the feminist community, in the animal advocacy movement, and among the general public. FAR sought to shine light on the connections between the treatment of women and animals under patriarchy. FAR also worked to raise consciousness about the links between social injustices and the degradation and destruction of nature and the earth.’
