Why is it important?

The paper is important because despite animal rights theorists and activists making strong arguments that nonhuman animals have rights, these arguments have not lead to swift or significant political change. The paper helps explain why this is and what may need to change in order for the arguments of animal rights theorists to gain more traction.
