New York – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to the news that Elle has banned fur from its global publications:

PETA’s years of protesting furriers and persuading the public to shun fur continue to pay off. Celebrities, top designers, shoppers, and even Queen Elizabeth II have rejected fur—and now, Elle has banned it from its pages worldwide and PETA is urging Anna Wintour and U.S. Vogue to come into the 21st century by leaving fur on the animals who were born with it.

More information about the fur industry is available here.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information about PETA’s investigative newsgathering and reporting, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
