Ever felt powerless about getting harassed on the street for being a woman? This clever poster series is traveling across the country as a platform for women to confront harassment. "You hear it all the time. ‘Hey baby, smile for me a little bit. Why are you so upset? Come on I know how to make you feel better.’ Some women decide to respond to the constant teasing, cat-calling and harassment with a cold shoulder. Brooklyn based artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh took her resistance to the streets. Her project ‘Stop Telling Women to Smile’ places portraits of women, defiant and impactful, in the very spaces where strangers have hounded her. The real power of Fazlalizadeh’s work, however, is not in reliving those moments of fear, but in allowing women to fight back.”Learn more about the campaign: http://bit.ly/1eyWvYB
