Hi! I am continuing my work on the life-centered issue of animal rights.
In my presentation I have identified the principle of animal rights as:
nonhuman animals deserving to live according to their own nature, free
from harm and abuse. I am researching the visible aspects surrounding
animals rights such as: humans exploiting animals for their own gain
because "animal cruelty is deeply embedded in our society- in the way we
eat and dress, in the products we use and even in the ways we chose to
entertain ourselves". For a presentation to students for a studio
project I would like them to think about the invisible aspects, that
most of this abuse and torture is unnecessary. Some of my concerns
include how to handle such difficult and controversial material as
animal rights without any parents breathing down my neck.(I have
gathered most of my information from The Animal Rights Handbook).
Thank you, Nicole Rickard
