Ever since her red swimsuit days, people
have been enamored with PETA's weapon of mass distraction, Pamela
Anderson. And now you can have a little piece of the original "Lettuce Lady" for yourself. When Pam and PETA
Vice President Dan Mathews spoke to Cambridge University about animal
rights, she autographed copies of the Paul McCartney–narrated meat-industry exposé "Glass
Walls" for the students. And she autographed a few more to give to lucky PETA Files
To enter to win, simply leave a comment
telling us about something Pam-like that you've done to help animals—her résumé
is extensive, so there's plenty to choose from. Maybe you've attended a fur demonstration,
spoken out against the
Canadian seal slaughter, ditched meat, adopted a companion animal,
given a speech about
animal rights, switched to cruelty-free
cosmetics, or acted to get
horse-drawn carriages off the dangerous streets.
Or maybe—like Pam—you've done all of the
above. Just tell us about it, and two winners will be selected at random.
And if reading about all of Pam's
compassionate actions has inspired you, plenty of animals still need your help,
so get out there and get Pamelactive!
The contest will end on March 27, 2013, and we'll contact the winners by March 29, 2013. By commenting here, you're acknowledging

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
