Animals need people to fight for them, so writing about them is important. I hope my books and articles will help increase people’s understanding of animals and draw attention to the cruelty that many suffer at human hands.
She has written 14 books and many articles about the behaviour of animals, and campaigned against their cruel use in experimental medical research. She has also championed women’s rights in academia since being denied the opportunity to become a professor 35 years ago on account of her gender.
