The Unbound Project  Profiling women on the front lines of animal advocacy around the world. A project by @weanimals.

Empowering words from Dobrosława Gogłoza, co-founder of Polish animal rights organization, @otwarteklatki (Open Cages).
.
The Unbound Project highlights trailblazers in the animal rights movement. These women aren't doing this work without fear; they're looking that fear straight in the eye and doing the work anyway.

In celebration of all the women changing the world for animals through food, the amazing @LaurenToyota from @HotForFood took over our Instagram on Saturday to share why she believes the plant based food movement is changing the world!

"I went vegan in 2010 and the options in the grocery store for really good tasting substitutes for meat and cheese were slim! Now we’ve come so far and the innovation and technology is incredible. I support this entirely and I’m a really big fan of what companies like Beyond Meat, Gardein etc. are doing. We are in an entirely different place then we were event 5 years ago and I love seeing it grow and become mainstream. Seeing celebrities, and huge billionaires like Bill Gates and Leo DiCaprio get behind this movement because it really affects and influences change. And we’re moving so much faster so who knows where this will be in 3 to 5 more years. I’m confident we’ll see great meatless and dairy and egg-free products at all major restaurant chains, if not entire vegan menus available."

Sandra Higgins is running one of the world's biggest and highest-impact vegan campaigns: @goveganworld. She's changing the game for promoting veganism in public spaces.

"Photographs are proof. That’s why so many of us love the camera. We capture “proof” of what’s happening out there, so that we can all see it, but more to the point, so that we can inspire you to help us change the problems of the world. Where words fail, images speak. The camera really is an incredibly powerful tool for change. Images change the course of history. Without exaggeration, and with humility, we wildlife photographers want to change the course of history for animals. And so we ask you to look, and to care, and to not turn away." - Jo

Jo recently wrote a piece for @natgeo Traveler China highlighting the important work Photographers Against Wildlife Crime are doing to document the plight of animals across the world at threat from the growing demand for wildlife products. Jo also discusses the work @weanimals is contributing towards a global conversation about our relationship with other animals and shares her insights on how photography is an important tool for change; encouraging readers to discover their passion and their skill, and to embrace it to make a difference for others.

"The main purpose in my life is to show people that baboons can be beautiful. And if I only lived for that, then I had a good life." - Rita Miljo, Founder of C.A.R.E.
.
In a community that long regarded baboons as vermin, Rita Miljo founded C.A.R.E. (@primate_care) – South Africa's first and now the world's largest baboon rehabilitation centre.
.
Today, Miljo's legacy lives on through Samantha Dewhirst and the team who defied the odds to continue the organization's work.

This June, The Unbound Project is featuring women changing the world for animals through food!

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, founder of @joyfulvegan has advocated for animals and compassionate eating for 20 years.

Why did she choose food as her form of activism? "My intention has always been to raise awareness about the plight of animals, to be their voice, and to give people the tools and resources they need to reflect their deepest values in their daily behavior.

20 years ago as a young animal activist, I was leafleting, tabling, and setting up weekly "Street TV" viewings of Meet Your Meat on public sidewalks. The responses I overwhelmingly received were "I don't want to be part of this, but ... where do I eat? Where do I shop? What about protein? What do I feed my children? Will my teenagers' growth be stunted? How do I replace eggs in baking?" and so on. I realized that people were compelled to make a change, but they lacked the resources (or resourcefulness) to make that change.
.
Enter cooking classes, during which time I could give them these tools while also talking about animal exploitation. Food is what it comes down to for folks, and if food was the way I could inspire them, then that's what I was going to do. And it worked."

Jo was recently presented with @humanecanada's 2018 Animal Welfare Award for Leadership and Innovation in Public Engagement. She spoke to the hundreds of assembled delegates about using our power to push the boundaries of compassion. 💕

This June, The Unbound Project is featuring women changing the world for animals through food!

Today we're celebrating Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, vegan author and speaker and founder of @joyfulvegan!

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is a recognized expert and thought leader on the culinary, social, ethical, and practical aspects of living compassionately and healthfully.
.
An award-winning author of several books on vegan eating and living, acclaimed speaker and host of podcasts 'Food for Thought' and 'Animology' she is changing the way we talk about, think about, and treat other animals. .
.
"I believe that when we change the way we think about and perceive other animals, we change the way we treat them. That is why my focus has been multi-pronged: my cookbooks and recipes give people what they need to eat delicious foods free of animal flesh and fluids; my podcast Food for Thought and my video series Vegan Point of View empowers people to think differently and act compassionately; my 30-Day Vegan Challenge guides people through the transition of becoming vegan so they can stand firmly in their new habits; my annual Compassion in Action conference gives attendees everything they need to be effective advocates and communicators... Basically, I try to give people the support they need from the time they first learn about animal issues, through their transition to being vegan, and all the way to the tools they need to STAY vegan."

Some wise words from the inspiring Kadri Taperson, Co-founder of Estonian animal rights organization @loomus.ee 💞

This month, the Unbound Project is featuring some of the powerhouse women changing the world for animals through food!

@tammyfry_ grew up surrounded by plant-based food at her family's @frysfamily

What inspired Fry Family Food? "As a family of vegetarians in South Africa almost 30 years ago, cooking, meal planning and fitting into a society of omnivores became very challenging. Wally and Debbie set out to make protein alternatives or plant meats in my home kitchen in an effort to make life a little easier (and tastier) for us as a family. Now 30 years on, our products are sold in over 30 countries worldwide (we still have to pinch ourselves!)" How is Fry's changing the world for animals? "We believe that our products have a great role to play in advocacy. Fry’s is really good transition food – it allows you to eat all your old favourites with no sacrifice on taste. Every year we calculate the number of animals saved should someone choose a Fry’s product over a meat product – last year that number was well over 110,000 animals (taking into account the average consumption of a variety of farm animals). This is how we measure our success."
