As an important an issue feminism is, it’s a difficult topic to raise awareness about as it’s either taken as a form of ‘man-hating’ or passed off as ‘angry woman rage’. But one activist named Elonë from Kasruhe, Germany, has solved the problem by using a controversial medium: women’s pads.

To drive home her message about gender equality and the elimination of rape culture, she chose International Women’s Day (March 8th) to spread her message around the city of Kasruhe.

The controversial form of activism has rallied support and critique from viewers all around the world. Some of her most popular photos with pads have even been shared thousands of time.

Elonë says she felt inspired to create the series when inspired by a tweet that read, “Imagine if men were as disgusted with rape as they are with periods.”

Despite the criticism which has rolled in, Elonë still maintains that her message is one of “equality, not hate.”

And indeed, her messages are so popular because they are so simple and clear: NOW is the time to stop rape culture, victim-blaming, and gender inequality.
