Exploring intersections of "the animal" & "the feminine" as an investigation of their reality: a poetic research project. Curated by Michelle Detorie. Send submissions/suggestions to femmeferal [at] gmail [dot] com.

"Indeed, much of the nineteenth-century women’s rights movement was devoted to urging that women be considered persons under the Constitution. As Keith Thomas points out, the centuries long debate over whether women have a soul paralleled similar discussions about the moral status of animals."

"The capacity to weep and then do something is worth everything. We want to remember that emotions are things we value. Creating change globally - this is not something you can do in your spare time. We all have to live it."

Rabbit in a Clearing -  Photo by Nelleke Pieters
HH:  I love the intimacy I feel when fortunate to view animals in the wild. There is that moment where they see me seeing them.
For one instant, they freeze, making their decision whether to allow you to continue watching or whether they will vanish in a flash.  
For me, usually hunched down and motionless, it is mesmorizing and all-encompassing.  I don’t even breath, except if the camera is in my hand.
