Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection explores respondents" attitudes and opinions about fur. Respondents were asked whether women dress to please themselves or others, if they personally owned fur clothing items or would like to own furs, if they were no longer wearing fur garments and why, if it irritated them to see someone wearing fur since animals had been killed to make it, and if there are circumstances when it is all right to kill an animal for its fur. Additionally, respondents were asked if they had heard anything about protests made by animal rights groups against killing animals to make fur coats, if they had felt social pressure not to wear fur, if they were concerned about animal rights groups confronting them when wearing fur, if they had ever been confronted by an animal rights group, and if anyone had ever sprayed their fur garments with paint in protest. Background information on respondents includes year of birth.
