This video gives a history of the animal rights movement and recounts the struggle that animal rights campaigns have encountered. The speaker has a clear bias towards animal rights, which you may or may not choose to agree with. Some of the changes in the attitudes towards animals go hand in hand with the developments in the environmental movement during the same period. These changes in the environmental movement and accompanying laws will be discussed further in Unit 5.
