Stop Telling Women To Smile

I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure lately from many different sources (strangers on the street, but also colleagues at work and school) to smile constantly. And ya know, that just…isn’t me. This project by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is really powerful, and although it’s directed at street harassment, I ask that we all consider how we might be encouraging that culture in our everyday interactions with people we know.

“I’m not here for you….that’s not what my existence is about..”
