Presentation: “The Mummy MOO Project: Dismantling the Dairy Narrative”

In this powerful presentation, Gillian shares her own personal story through a feminist, intersectional lens to draw parallels between the oppression of woman and the oppression of cows in the dairy system, weaving throughout photographs from the MummyMOO Project.
