Feminism is defined as a movement that advocates equality, human dignity and women‘s self-determination. The aim is to bring about a change in gender relations and thus create a social structure in which women are equal to men.
Johanna Dohnal, Austria‘s first minister for women, described the movement‘s concerns as follows: „The vision of feminism is not a female future. It is a human future. Without role constraints and power relations.” By this definition anyone who is in favor of gender equality is a feminist.
The project „Feminism – Designed by Society“ came into being during the course „Research & Knowledge“ at the FH JOANNEUM Graz, where Yuliya Hofer and Anna Eber are currently studying Information Design. For further information feel free to visit the project website here.
