Feminism is always worth talking about, but it’s hard to grab people’s attention.
Elonë, a woman in Karsruhe, Germany, solved this problem by using a controversial medium – period pads – to drive home her message about gender equality and the elimination of rape culture.
Elonë has already gained the attention of thousands of supporters and critics from around the globe. Her message is raw and in your face, which is what is needed when the topic at hand is discussed.
She says she was inspired to create the series by a tweet that read “imagine if men were as disgusted with rape as they are with periods.”
Elonë’s message is clear – it’s time to stop rape culture
“Feminism means equality, not men hate”
Her messages address serious issues like rape culture, victim blaming and the objectification of women
Some are offended by her use of period pads, but that just means her message is spreading.
Supporters from all over the world have expressed their desire to emulate her project in their own cities.
