Carol J. Adams is the author of the pioneering book, The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory, and the recently released, The Pornography of Meat. Ms. Adams' work is widely cited, anthologized and used as a text in college courses in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. Her work is featured in an award-winning documentary, "A Cow at My Table."

Besides advancing scholarship and developing theory in the area of interlocking oppressions, Ms. Adams has created a series of books that address the vegetarian/vegan experience: Living Among Meat Eaters: The Vegetarian Survival Guide, Help! My Child Stopped Eating Meat! and The Inner Art of Vegetarianism. In addition to her innovative theoretical work, she is a committed activist on antiviolence issues.
