“Sexy Chickens” in Salt Lake:
Any readers in the Salt Lake area, I’d like to invite you to join me for a multi-media presentation, Sexy Chickens: A Feminist-Vegetarian Media Critique. It will be held this Thursday,July 28, in Conference Room C at the Salt Lake Public Library (210 E. 400 S.)
This presentation is designed to increase media literacy and facilitate a conversation about how the objectification of women and animals is linked in our collective imagination. We will begin by looking at some of the techniques that advertisers commonly use to objectify and commodify women, then see how the same techniques are used to feminize and sexualize animals. As we make the connections, we will think about how these pervasive messages influence the way we think about women, men, animals, our relationships, and ourselves.
And vegan cupcakes will be served at the end of the presentation!
If you’d like, you can RSVP on our facebook events page.
