Pam Ryan: Anti-Speciesist Language is for Everyone

Pam wholeheartedly believes the rhetoric we accept correlates to the actions we deem acceptable. She desires a more compassionate world, beginning with how to speak to and about one another, including our non-human animal friends. Let’s dive into the violent imagery of our everyday language, the inaccuracy of our animal-related descriptors and the derogatory ways we compare each other to non-human animals. But it’s not all bad! She’ll be sharing alternative everyday idioms, phrases and terms that won’t just change the way we speak but in time may change our mindset too.
