Carol J. Adams is the author of The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory, a ground-breaking work connecting the oppression of women and animals and paving the way for ecofeminism. She is a lifelong advocate and activist for transforming a world that is built on inequality.

Adams has published more than 100 articles in journals, books, and magazines on the issues of vegetarianism and veganism, animal advocacy, domestic violence and sexual abuse. She is particularly interested in the interconnections among forms of violence against human and nonhuman animals, writing, for instance (in Animals and Women), about why woman-batterers harm animals and the implications of this. Besides developing theory in the area of interlocking oppressions, she has created a series of books that address the vegetarian/vegan experience: Living Among Meat Eaters: The Vegetarian Survival Guide, Help! My Child Stopped Eating Meat! and The Inner Art of Vegetarianism. Because she is so deeply moved by her relationship with animals, she has authored books of prayers for animals for both adults and children. More information is available at her website: http://www.caroljadams.com/.
