Bringing Peace Home: A Feminist Philosophical Perspective on the Abuse of Women, Children, and Pet Animals

Hypatia 9 (2):63 - 84 (1994)
Abstract
In this essay, I connect the sexual victimization of women, children, and pet animals with the violence manifest in a patriarchal culture. After discussing these connections, I demonstrate the importance of taking seriously these connections because of their implications for conceptual analysis, epistemology, and political, environmental, and applied philosophy. My goal is to broaden our understanding of issues relevant to creating peace and to provide some suggestions about what must be included in any adequate feminist peace politics.
