Zana Ramadani (born 1984) is a German politician, feminist activist, and author of Albanian descent. She was chair of the Junge Union, the youth organization of the CDU (Conservative Party), in Wilnsdorf in Central Germany.[1]

She came to prominence when she founded the German branch of the feminist protest group FEMEN in 2012, and was involved in a number of topless protests against sexual exploitation. One high-profile protest involved invading the stage of Heidi Klum's television casting show Germany's Next Topmodel during the finale of cycle 8 sporting the slogan "Heidi horror picture show" as a critique of the beauty ideal propagated by the fashion industry. In another, the group appeared on the street in Hamburg's red-light district (the Reeperbahn), with Ramadani wearing the slogan "Destroy the Sex Industry!".[2]

Ramadani's book Die verschleierte Gefahr: Die Macht der muslimischen Mütter und der Toleranzwahn der Deutschen was published in March 2017.[3] It critiques Islam and the role of Muslim mothers.[4][5]

According to a Süddeutsche Zeitung interview in April 2017, she frequently receives death threats from conservative Muslims,[6] and after she was pregnant, the Muslim threats also included beating her to cause a miscarriage. As police would not give her protection, she applied for a firearms license.[7]
