Women, power, and meat: Comparing the sexual contract and the sexual politics of meat

Journal of Social Philosophy 27 (1):47-64 (1996)
Abstract
Eating animals acts as mirror and representation of patriarchal values. Meat eating is the re-inscription of male power at every meal. The patriarchal gaze sees not the fragmented flesh of dead animals but appetizing food. If our appetites re-inscribe patriarchy, our actions regarding eating animals will either reify or challenge this received culture. If meat is a symbol of male dominance then the presence of meat proclaims the disempowering of women
