An anti-feminist Facebook campaign initiated by the conservative "Alternative for Germany" (AfD) party is generating criticism from feminists in the country. 

The "I Am Not a Feminist" campaign responds to Germany's ongoing debate over a proposal to mandate 30 per cent of non-executive company board seats to women. Responding to the proposed gender quota, young AfD members posted photos with signs explaining why feminism to them is an outdated ideology.
