Her influential book Skönheter & odjur  (2005 ) is the first book in

Swedish to analyze the oppressive relationship between humans and the category of animals including the oppression of human groups. The book employs historical and sociological perspectives, introducing and devoloping the issues of critical animal studies in general from feminist perspectives, presenting the concepts  of anthro-androcentrism, meat normativity, and hyperexploitation. In her work the historical and current expression 'like 'animals'' ("som 'djur'") and  the role of the animal category in Aristotle's theory in  Politics are deconstructed.
