 "A picture is worth a thousand words, and the cover of Lisa Kemmerer's anthology Sister Species is a doozy. . . . It's an eye-grabbing, opinion-provoking cover, and a fairly accurate preparation for the content featured in Sister Species.--Bitch



"Takes us on a unique journey of thought and self-discovery."--Journal for Critical Animals Studies


«Prompt[s] us to recognize that attention to nature and animals should be at the forefront of any feminist agenda."--SIGNS»

«Through their stories, [these] women establish that the suffering of animals is an important concern for human beings; that women's involvement in animal advocacy is consistent with other traditions of women's social advocacy, and that there are connections among forms of oppression and that these connections require that we include animals in our advocacy."--from the foreword by Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory»

«Forceful in its rhetoric, the book is also a delight. . . . The conversational style of the writing makes it a high-quality read."--ForeWord

«Through the empowering use of women's voices it exemplifies how the personal is political and reminds us that looking about us for our contribution to injustice elsewhere is a crucial part of fighting for liberation anywhere. . . . It is a call to action."--Hypatia

«A collection of 10 compelling essays by a who's-who of accomplished activists, Sister offers insight and education through firsthand accounts. . . . The exceptionally inspiring and enlightening essays leave you longing for a sequel."--VegNews»

«Animal lovers will find this of clear interest, while those investigating women's lives will likely be surprised and intrigued by the issues it raises."--Booklist

"This is a book worth having on a personal and academic bookshelf to return to over and over again to remind ourselves that all species human and non-human deserve and need our protection and respect."--Gender and Education

"Kemmerer provides a space to embrace narrative and the unique experiences of women doing social justice work. . . . The growing discourse of ecofeminists and women animal advocates needs a larger library of texts like these."--Feminist Formations

"The diversity of contributors refutes the myth that concern for animal species is a white, middle class phenomenon. Compulsory motherhood, rape racks, slavery, the separation of mothers from infants--these are feminist issues, whether they occur in human cultures or in agriculture. Females are at the bottom of every gendered hierarchy--and animal activists are diversely raced, classed, and sexed. The time for exclusionary feminisms is over."--Greta Gaard, editor of Ecofeminism: Women, Animals, Nature»
