Ableism, ageism and speciesism
On intersections and inclusiveness in the animal rights movement
Geertrui Cazaux

Ableism and ageism is social prejudice and discrimination respectively on the basis of abilities and age. The presentation will look at these issues, from three angles:

  1. How does ableism/ageism against humans intersect with ableism/ageism against other animals?
  2. What about ableism and ageism in the animal rights/vegan movement and in activism?
  3. What issues can we take into account to be an inclusive movement? How can we reach accessible activism beyond tokenism?
