On February 28th, The Gabarron Foundation Carriage House Center for the Arts celebrates the publication of Marti Kheel’s new book Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective with a release party in NYC.
From the author’s description of the book:
Nature Ethics examines the influence of gender on environmental thought, critiquing an orientation which seeks to save “the Wolf” by killing wolves. Kheel offers a reminder that nature ethics must include empathy and care for individual animals as well as concern for larger wholes like “species,” “the ecosystem,” or the “land.”
Marti Kheel is co-founder of Feminists for Animal Rights and is well known for her popular slide show, Animal Liberation Through an Ecofeminist Lens. Sometimes referred to as a “dissection of the patriarchal mind,” the slide show traces the similar world view that has produced the twin oppressions of women and animals.
Thursday, February 28th. 6-9pm. Reading at 7pm. 149 East 38th Street (btw Lexington and 3rd). Vegan hors d’oeuvres. RSVP: 510-236-6057 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
