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. Basically we are combining activism and art to create awareness for gender equality. With our new project “WHAT IS FEMINISM today?” we are going international now!
We want to draw attention to feminist issues and debates. We want to give people a platform. We want to inspire people to contribute to gender equality. We want to empower people in their feminist perspective and connect them. That is why we have been campaigning since 2012 to make feminist issues visible. We want to contribute to the growth of the feminist movement.
With “WHAT IS FEMINISM today?” we are working especially on doing even more educational work internationally. We give workshops on feminist topics and the feminist movement. In addition, we are about to preparing feminist content digitally and make it available to the general public.
Our German Campaign and Exhibition “Wer braucht Feminismus?”
As part of the photo campaign of the same name, “Wer braucht Feminismus?” has collected over 3,000 feminist statements so far, which are presented in the internet and a traveling exhibition. We already showed our exhibition in over 50 locations in town halls, universities and libraries in Germany.
We were organizing a lot of talks, panels, conferences and network events in the last 10 years. Besides other awards were nominated for the “Smart Hero Award” (Facebook & Stiftung Digitale Chancen) and won the “Green Pussy Hat” (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen). We are organized as an initiative and do the grassroots work on a voluntary basis.
