Feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it’s just basically another word for equality.

Feminism is equality: politically, culturally, socially, economically. That’s it, that simple.

Feminism is a matter of fairness and the prerequisite for a just, sustainable world.

Quiz: What do you know about women in space?

Many of us didn’t learn about the feminist movement in school. That’s why we decided to take a look at facts and figures about feminist issues and prepare quizzes for you. We are starting with the very big picture. 

Have you ever noticed? Like earth, space is struggling with gender equality. We believe: space is for everyone! It looks like we need more feminism even in space.

The “Vulva Spaceship”: 
a symbol for more equality in the entire universe.

We feel very blessed that our special spaceship concept has received so much attention: 250 Million media impressions, headlines in 110 countries, half a billion people impacted. Thank you very much for the many articles, interviews, radio reports, social media posts and comments. Our “Vulva Spaceship” even made it to the Late Night Show of Stephen Colbert.

After the launch of our “Vulva Spaceship” and all the media reports we received a lot of feedback and a number of requests: An article in a book, an invitation to the Summer Space Festival in Belgium and a lot of mails of man who explained us how to improve the “Vulva Spaceship”. The Australian News called it “Lefty Lunacy”. But above all, we created many question marks!

Art can and should create question marks!

Let’s dream big.
Imagine there are equal opportunities. Everywhere.

Have you ever noticed? In space travel all the problems that we have on earth are amplified. For example, in the coveted position of space traveler, only 12% were female so far. It's time for equal opportunities in the entire universe!

That's why we developed the “Vulva Spaceship”. We want to inspire people to think about socially relevant topics. Our societies still have a lot of gender related issues in daily life, in politics, in economics, in education and health. We should use our ressources and energy for the greater good and make earth and even space more equal places.

We believe that equality even has a place in space.
It’s time for new symbols in the universe.

Let's launch the Vulva Spaceship

Like earth, space is struggling with gender equality. We believe: space is for everyone! We think that it's time for humankind to take the next giant leap. We would like to join forces with you to look to the future. How looks space traveling in the future? Who is involved?
With our project “WBF Aeronautics” we want to inspire space travel to be open to modern forms and to realize equal opportunities across the entire universe.

Thanks to everyone who took part in our project and signed our petition. We are grateful for all your signatures that we collected on our mission to create the “Vulva Spaceship”.

About “WHAT IS FEMINISM today?”

The German initiative “Wer braucht Feminismus?” was founded in 2012 by the activist and artist Jasmin Mittag. In the last 10 years, we have raised awareness of gender-based discrimination with various projects and have set ourselves the goal of empowering people.

Support Feminism

We still have a lot of gender related issues in daily life, in politics, in economics, in education and health – in nearly every area we take a look at. It's a disadvantage not to be a man and be seen as female. Gender clichés and gender roles are still omnipresent and produce limited options for all of us to this very day. 

We should use our ressources and energy for the greater good and join forces to make earth a more equal place. There are many ways to support equal opportunities. Especially in everyday life, we can all make a contribution through small measures. What are your tips on how we can be more feminist in everyday life? Share your experience! We create a list that we continuously add to. We look forward to your submission! How to behave feminist in daily life? Put your tip in one sentence.
