New Article: Social Movements and Food Inequalities – A Transformative Collaboration
The journal “Estudos Sociedade e Agricultura” published the article “Movimentos sociais como agentes de mudança: combatendo as desigualdades alimentares interseccionais, fazendo dos alimentos teias de vida” (Social Movements as Agents of Change: Combating Intersectional Food Inequalities, Weaving Food into Lifelines) by Renata Campos Motta, researcher from the University of Heidelberg.
The article explores how movements for food justice, food sovereignty, feminism, animal rights, and local food initiatives are joining forces to challenge established norms and address complex inequalities tied to race, gender, and class. It sheds light on how diverse movements are exposing power asymmetries in the global food system, confronting often overlooked inequalities. Simultaneously, it addresses how systemic racism in food production and distribution is being tackled by advocates for food justice. Feminist movements and animal rights activists are also at the forefront of this collaboration that transcends geographical boundaries, connecting voices in the USA, Latin America, and the Global South.
This research underscores the significance of dialogue between scholars and activists in building just and sustainable food systems on a global scale. Enjoy reading: https://revistaesa.com/ojs/index.php/esa/article/view/esa31-2_03.
