On International Women’s Day, we recognize the countless women working to create a world where animals are respected and protected. The contribution of women to the fight for justice for animals is vital and cannot be ignored.
Women throughout history have led the animal protection movement, from the first animal shelter in America founded by Caroline Earle White, to the first suffragettes who gathered at vegetarian restaurants.
Women in the animal rights movement are becoming stronger, united and present, not only in the fight for animal liberation, but also in the convergence that this social justice movement has with the feminist fight.
For decades, bold, brave and passionate women have been on the front lines, defending animals and fighting to create a more compassionate and just world.
Fortunately, many people around the world are working to end animal cruelty.
But among all these people, and in the front line, we find many women.
Indeed, the animal rights movement is a movement led primarily by women.
In hunting sabotage, in actions in bullfighting arenas, in rescuing animals from stables and laboratories, in undercover filming… courageous and determined women are present.
We pay tribute and honor to all the courageous women of the animal rights movement.
My best regards to all, Venus
