High Priestess in the Pulpit: A Theory on the Feminist Vegetarian/Vegan Movement

I was a vegetarian for about three years. When I think about the reasons for it, I found that my initial decision was to eat as low on the food chain as humanly possible in order to lessen the amount of suffering on the planet.

As a woman, I knew what it was to be subjected to sexism and objectified. Because of this, I didn't want to perpetuate the cycle any longer. I wanted to be a part of the solution if even in a small way.

I've often thought about the psychological reasons behind my choice and think this article explains it fairly well. Have a look. And for the French speakers. :)
