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 and in relation to feminism, 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.
