Gender-Based Street Harassment

Whistling construction and street workers. How I don't like that. I'm not a dog. But what annoyed me more were women telling me 'it's a compliment', sorry!? Are you joking?! Unfortunately they weren't.

Another thing, 'guys' on Facebook starting a conversation with honey, sweetie, dear. So pathetic. Do I know you?

"While some may combat the unsolicited attention with a cold stare, Brooklyn-based artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh has an alternative way of addressing the problem. In a project titled "Stop Telling Women to Smile," Fazlalizadeh places portraits of women in public spaces, encouraging victims of gender-based street harassment to fight back."
