People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is being accused of exploiting women for the purpose of getting its message out.

“PETA is extremely disingenuous,” said Jennifer Pozner, executive director of the New York-based advocacy group Women In Media & News. “They have consistently used active sexism as their marketing strategy to garner attention. Their use of sexism has gotten more extreme and more degrading.

“This may be in their minds the only thing left at their disposal to lower the bar,” she said.

PETA doesn’t think that’s a very liberated view.

[PETA’s Lindsay] Rajt denied that PETA has been insensitive to women. “Our demonstrators, the models, all chose to participate in our campaigns… It’s not a very feminist thing to do to turn to women and tell them whether or not they can use their voices, their bodies to express their voice.”
