AFAR - what do we stand for?
Australina Feminists for Animal Rights seeks to raise the consciousness of the feminist community, the animal rights community, and the general public regarding the connections between the objectification, exploitation, and abuse of both women and animals in patriarchal society.
As ecofeminists, we also are concerned about cultural and racial injustice and the devaluation and destruction of nature and the earth. We view the cultural construct of patriarchy (as distinct from the biological fact of maleness) as a system of hierarchical domination, a system that works for the powerful against the powerless.
