When I read about “Stop Telling Women to Smile” by Brooklyn-based artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, I was struck; it is a fantastic visual display aiming to raise awareness about street harassment and violence against women. The Huffington Post online Article that featured the project on Friday mentioned that Fazlalizadeh wants to bring “Stop Telling Women to Smile” to Kansas City (as well as other cities across the nation), and is looking to do so through a Kickstarter campaign; I really hope that becomes a reality!
