  • Animal Rights Talk: Moral Debate over the Internet
    Qualitative Sociology, 1997
    Co-Authors: Harold A. Herzog, Beth L. Dinoff, Jessica R. Page
    Abstract:

    Messages sent over Animal Rights-Talk, an electronic mail network devoted to the discussion of issues related to the Animal Rights movement, were analyzed. Messages typically fell into the following categories: questions and information, discussions of philosophical issues, ethical problems associated with the treatment of particular species, the politics of the Animal Rights movement, problems of moral consistency, the ethics of particular uses of non-human species (e.g., meat consumption, biomedical research with Animal subjects), and matters pertaining to the internal life of the network (e.g., efforts at control of perceived norm violations). Debates between Animal activists and Animal researchers over the network often reflected the conflicting cosmologies of scientists and Animal protectionists. We argue that computer bulletin boards offer a potentially important avenue for qualitative research.

  • “The Movement Is My Life”: The Psychology of Animal Rights Activism
    Journal of Social Issues, 1993
    Co-Authors: Harold A. Herzog
    Abstract:

    1 used a qualitative research approach to investigate psychological aspects of involvement in the Animal Rights movement. Interviews were conducted with 23 rank-and-file activists, focusing on cognitive and emotional aspects of involvement with the movement, concomitant lifestyle changes, effects on interpersonal relations, and the happiness and well-being of the participants. Three main themes emerged from these interviews. First, there was a surprising degree of diversity in attitudes and beliavior of the activists. Second, Animal Rights activism usually entailed major changes in lifestyle: almost all interviewees strove to achieve consistency between their ideals and their actions. Third, there were several parallel.^ between an involvement with the Animal Rights movement and religious conversion. The potential for increased communication between the Animal protection and scientific communities is discussed. The Animal Rights movement has been spectacularly successful at drawing public attention to the ethical issues involved in our relationships with other species. Animal protection organizations have proliferated in number, membership, and influence since the publication of Peter Singer’s book .Animal Liber

  • Gender, Relational Role Orientation, and Affinity for Animal Rights
    Sex Roles, 1997
    Co-Authors: Charles W. Peek, Charlotte Chorn Dunham, Bernadette E. Dietz
    Abstract:

    Research based mainly on non-national samples reports a greater affinity for Animal Rights among women than men, and proposes a greater relational role orientation among women that emphasizes caring for others to explain this difference. Using a recent national sample comprised of 11% African American and 89% white American respondents, we find that a relational role orientation fails to account for women’s greater support of Animal Rights. It does provide minor help in distinguishing Animal Rights advocates from nonadvocates, but only among women and only on one of two measures of Animal Rights support. We conclude by proposing women’s structural locations as well as the interplay between these locations and women’s role socialization as alternate explanations for gender differences in affinity for Animal Rights.

  • GENDER, GENDER IDEOLOGY, AND Animal Rights ADVOCACY:
    Gender & Society, 1996
    Co-Authors: Charles W. Peek, Nancy J. Bell, Charlotte Chorn Dunham
    Abstract:

    Research on women’s preponderance among Animal Rights advocates explains it exclusively as a product of women’s socialization, emphasizing a relational orientation of care and nurturing that extends to Animals. The authors propose a more structural explanation: Women’s experiences with structural oppression make them more disposed to egalitarian ideology, which creates concern for Animal Rights. Using data from a 1993 national sample, the authors find that an egalitarian gender ideology is a key difference in women’s and men’s routes to Animal Rights advocacy: It differentiates those more likely to endorse Animal Rights among women but not among men. Neither this ideology nor other variables in the analysis, however, account for women’s greater overall support of Animal Rights in the combined sample. Reasons for this latter finding are explored.

  • An Attitude Survey of Animal Rights Activists
    Psychological Science, 1991
    Co-Authors: S. Plous
    Abstract:

    Animal Rights activism is increasing rapidly, yet no empirical research has sought to determine who the Animal Rights activists are, what they believe, and what they hold as their agenda. An attitude survey was therefore conducted of 402 Animal Rights activists who attended a recent rally in Washington. Results indicated that nearly half of these activists felt that Animal research should not be the primary focus of the Animal Rights movement. There was also considerable disagreement surrounding the issue of laboratory break-ins. These and other findings from the survey suggest that Animal Rights activists hold diverse objectives and viewpoints.
