Dan Mathews, PETA Sr. VP of Campaigns talks to host Emil Guillermo about the evolution of PETA's fight to end the use of fur in fashion. Mathews explains why top designers are abandoning fur, and talks about how one, John Galliano, eventually came around to stop using fur. But only after a cute meet with Dan in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Mathews has seen the victories come over the nearly three decades of activism. He talks about how the "I'd Rather Be Naked Than Wear Fur" idea took hold, and how the very first nude protest came about, thanks to some troubled teens in Japan.

The campaigns aren't over yet.
