German artist writes on maxi pads to protest rape culture

This feminist is putting anti-sexism messages on sanitary towels – and she’s calling for men and women to join the cause


Her work has been criticised and praised in equal measure: there are some who say she’s blazing a trail for a good cause, others claim she’s wasting valuable tampons and should be giving them to homeless women instead. Fair enough, but weird too – she can do both. If marrying menstruation and rape takes audiences out of their comfort zone, isn’t that the definition of a successful art project?
