Experiments with Truth: Analysis

German artist writes on maxi pads to protest rape culture

Last year, Twitter user @cutequeer96 asked a simple question: “What if men were as disgusted with rape as they are by periods”? The viral tweet has gone on to inspire a global conversation about rape culture and attitudes about women. In Karlsruhe, a city in southwest Germany, it’s also inspired a pretty interesting project: maxi pad protest art.

German artist Elonë has been sticking up sanitary towels all over her home city, repeating @cutequeer96’s message and other statements like “rapists rape people not outfits”, “my pussy my choice” and “my name is not baby”.
