A Woman In Germany Is Bombing The Streets With Feminist Messages Written On Period Pads

"Rapists rape people, not outfits."

Meet Elonë, a 20-year-old living in Karlsruhe, Germany. In just a few days, Elonë took the Internet by storm with her bold new initiative: feminist pads.


She prints out thought-provoking feminist quotes and attaches them to the front of the sanitary products. Then she sticks them onto poles and street signs for the public to see.

Elonë's viral series was apparently inspired in part by this queer activist's post on Twitter.

Her messages address the issues of equal rights, street harassment and rape culture.

One of the signs read: "My name is not baby."

In response to her project, Elonë received incredible support from the Internet community, including people who want to continue the project in their cities as well.

But the powerful project has attracted some haters.

When someone asked her on Tumblr why she was a feminist, she responded simply and powerfully: "Are you scared of woman with voice?"
