Our guests: lohaus

Stefanie Lohaus is a cultural scientist and co-editor of the Missy Magazine. She says: "Sexist comments are part of a rape culture. It is done in order to keep women in their place and to undermine them."



Birgit Kelle is a freelance journalist and author of several books about gender topics. She says: “Women rights are not endangered mainly by white men, but in parts by a midieval attitude of migrants about women rights”.



Alan Posener is a commentator and author for the daily newspaper “Die Welt”. He says: “It has been well said that men fear women because they might laugh at them, whereas women fear men because they might kill them. In this respect, as in many others, women's experience with men is similar to Jews' experience with gentiles.”
