World Day against Speciesism 2023 – June 5 The World Day against Speciesism is annually observed on June 5th across the world, to stop discrimination based on species membership. The day is initiated by animal rights advocates, and its main goal is to remind people that speciesism, like racism or sexism, has no place in a civilised society.
- The day is supported/observed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), and other animal rights groups.
- World Day against Speciesism is a good opportunity for the general public to learn about animal rights and veganism.
Note: World Day for the End of Speciesism (WoDES) is a similar event, which is observed annually at the end of August around the world since 2015.
What is Speciesism?
i. The term Speciesism refers to the assignment of different rights, values, or special consideration to individuals solely on the basis of their species.
ii. “Speciesism” is the human-held belief that all other animal species are inferior.
Origin of Speciesism:
i. In 1970, the term Speciesism was coined by Dr Richard D. Ryder, the psychologist, ethicist, writer and political animal lobbyist in one of his essays.
ii. In those essays he put forward to call attention to the fact that the attitude toward animals derives from the same kind of mentality as racism or sexism.
iii. But, the term Speciesism was introduced internationally in 1975 by Peter Singer, a student at Oxford, England, the United Kingdom (UK).
iv. He wrote a book titled “Animal Liberation” by contacting Richard Ryder, which is widely considered to be the philosophical background of the animal liberation movement.
Animal rights advocates claim that speciesism is a prejudice similar to sexism or racism, and according to them, any use of animals by humans (to produce food and clothes, for scientific experiments, in the entertainment industry, etc.) is a form of discrimination and abuse.
