Excerpt:

Why is it harder for women to torment and kill animals than it is for men? Because women, who are oppressed by the same logic of domination that oppresses animals, form a special bond with animals– their fellow victims of male violence and patriarchy. Furthermore, as victims of oppression ourselves, we know what it means to be treated like a mere tool, object, commodity, or instrument. We know how it feels to be dominated and exploited by those in positions of power and privilege. And for most of us, we would never wish such experiences upon any other being: human or animal.
