Rape of the Wild Man's Violence Against Animals and the Earth Summary Õ 107 One of the really significant books to have come out of the women's movement Mary DalyRape of the Wild is a bold work that stresses the absolute necessity of kinship with nature and all forms of life Animal's AgendaThis book is constructively radical I ve been trying to catch up with some eco feminist titles lately and RAPE OF THE WILD is a challenging and at times unusual book in this genre Overall I think Carol J Adams does a bit better on this topic but Collard has a wider scope to deal with that is this isn t just about the patriarchal oppression of both women and nonhuman animals in a similar way but also about man s destruction of the earth and biological systems as a whole I do think the author is little too idealistic of prehistoric times what she sees as a matriarchal societies living in harmony with rather than destroying the earth and each other The fact is none of us really know what life was like during the earliest stages of human culture and society However I m willing to bet that there was cruelty greed and exclusion simply because we see this behavior in even very young children it appears to be part of our makeup We must be taught to be considerate of others and for some the early lessons never do sink in RAPE OF THE WILD could be considered an animal advocacy work as unlike many environmentalists Collard refuses to just see nature in macro and focuses in on the individual experiences of animals caught up in the human machine In keeping with the animal advocacy movement of the 1960s through the 1980s sport hunting and vivisection are Collard s primary focuses she devotes a chapter to each Indeed both are important issues which cause a lot of suffering both are also primarily male driven pursuits infused with disturbing rape y language However animal agriculture represents by far the greatest abuse of the female body in the animal kingdom as well as the greatest abuse of all animals period It s no wonder many eco feminists see withdrawing support of the meat dairy and egg industries as a feminist act Collard has me confused when she turns her attention to human females or at least women s reproductive choices The book acknowledges the prejudices women face if they do not conform to gender norms specifically highlighting women who choose not to have children At the same time she posits that human infertility is also on the rise Seriously With seven billion and counting clearly our problem is too many rather than too few I m guessing that those of us in educated and affluent parts of the world may think this is true because people in the West tend to wait longer to have children and have fewer when they do However humans as a whole are clearly far too fecund we d be much better off if we d knock off the breeding and people who want children would adopt them instead The author imagines a male dominated scientifically perfected future in which Only special women would be allowed to continue to breed while the rest of us would gradually be phased out However this too is but a step toward the elimination not only of women but all other species as we know them including our own Wow Ok I ve actually seen this forced human extinction theory before usually from the propaganda of right leaning conspiracy theorists But think about this we re freuently reminded that if bees and other pollinators disappeared the ecosystem would collapse However if human beings were to become extinct nature would benefit tremendously The ecosystem would just keep on humming along without our help And I d also like to add just how difficult it is to choose a permanent method of birth control in many parts of the Western world at least Women must jump through a lot of hoops and do a lot of waiting if they wish to be sterilized Our society and government also reward having children with tax breaks incentives and programs Sorry I just don t see ANY discouragement of breeding In the footnotes the author states that apparently the fit are beating the unfit in the race for self elected sterilization noting that tubal ligation is the number one birth control used by married couples And I m not really sure if the author sees this as a positive or negative development or perhaps she feels the male in the relationship should shoulder this duty in a euitable way However I would think that there are very few things empowering than taking control of your own body and making informed adult choices on whether to bring people into this world A woman who chooses a tubal ligation is doing both of these things and it s a choice that will stay with her even if her relationship doesn t last Why rely on others even an intimate partner to make choices about YOUR bodyFor those women who do choose to have biological children the author speaks approvingly of those pregnant women who refuse prenatal tests and hospital births and instead to do things the natural way facefreakingpalm You put your own life at risk Stupid but your choice You put an innocent child s life at risk perhaps dooming himher to all sorts of painful and debilitating complications Argh Why This foolishness is why some otherwise sympathetic people may reject Collard s work as a whole which is a shame in essence throwing the baby out with the bathwater

Rape of the Wild Man's Violence Against Animals and the Earth Summary Õ 107 N's subjugation and exploitation of the natural environment and of women Forest History SocietyThis visionary and inspiring book is a cogent analysis of man's use and misuse of his environment and an impassioned plea for a feminist ecological revoluti This is a fantastic book but it is very hard to read I was particularly surprised that it was not the chapter on animal experimentation but rather the chapter on reproductionreproductive technologyattitudes around reproduction that was hardest for me to read emotionally I think that may be because I have been reading about and trying to combat vivisection for a very long time while I feel that reproductive choice is and should be a no brainerI agreed with most of what the authors had to say but not all of it
