“Stop Telling Women To Smile”, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh


I freaking love this. It’s a public art project created by Brooklyn-based artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. “As a portrait artist I wanted to use the images of women, personal friends and colleagues of mine, to humanize women in the public spaces — giving faces and voices to the bodies that are sexualized on the street.” The portraits, drawn by Fazlalizadeh, are made to be plastered on walls and include some pretty amazing captions that speak directly to street harassers. She’s more than doubled her Kickstarter goal already, and hopes to expand to more cities (including Boston!) — I am all about that. Image
