This is what a Feminist looks like in Frankfurt

This Project was initiated by the Women’s Department of Frankfurt to show the continuity and topicality of feminist issues and struggles. There are activists, politicians, people from institutions and the entire city society who are committed to equality, women’s rights, feminism and stand against sexism and discrimination in Frankfurt and beyond.
The message of the portraits: Feminists are diverse and their struggles take place in many places. Whether in the Palmengarten, on the street, at the kitchen table or in associations and initiatives.
