Shortly after school and my apprenticeship (hotel-managing) in Bremen I went to Berlin. Then I decided to work as an au-pair girl in New York. It was my intention, to work in a jewish family and I had the possibility
to get aquainted with the othodox rituals. Because the family supported their children to go to Israel, I became confronted with the situation there. In New York I met people, who where engaged in the protests against the Vietnam war and I participated
in a huge demonstration on Fifth-Avenue in 1967. From there on I became interested in conflict and also in the situation of people in the so called in third world countries.
I didn't want to continue working in my former profession and I studied educational science, Art, Englisch and German.
At the beginning of the eighties I started to write articles and published books. My main issues are women's life, especially women at work - in my own
country as well as in Africa, Asia and Latin America, women's movement and womens work worlwide..
Today I am engaged in the "Clean Clothes Campaign", which tries to improve the working conditions of textile-workers throuout the world in the Womens Museum of Bremen and the Womens Pages of Bremen
