Complicating Intersectionality: The Relationship between Women of Color and Non-Human Animals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper seeks to develop a new theory of intersectionality by drawing from two areas of feminist theory that are rarely put into dialogue with one another: ecofeminism and intersectionality theory that emerges within the context of women of color feminisms. By focusing on two of the most pernicious and violent indications of sexism and speciesism (rape and slaughter, respectively), I seek to show that the lives of women and the lives of non-human animals do more than intersect: they also co-constitute each other in the sense that our conception of one defines our conception of the other.
