In the late 1970s, Nina Hagen sang Unbeschreiblich Weiblich, a rebellious punk song about abortion. She immediately led an entire generation of girls into the second wave of feminism. Nowadays, the glass ceiling appears only to be showing some cracks.

More and more conservative voices want to govern and limit the female body. There is a wage- and orgasm gap, and Nina's song seems all but forgotten. What is it like to be a woman in today's world? What is it like to be the other? A literary-diverse raging and laughing army of writers and musicians answers those questions.
