Stop Telling Women to Smile (since 2012) Stop Telling Women to Smile is a street art series from Brooklyn based artist, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. The work consists of drawn portraits of women who have told their stories of harassment. The portraits are wheat pasted on outdoor walls, placing the images and voices of women in the public space. STWTS has been covered by MSNBC, NPR, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Daily Beast, Fast Company, Ebony Magazine, Huffington Post, and more. The response to the project has been staggering. Women from across the globe email their stories of harassment and appreciation for the project. In order to expand the project, Tatyana launched a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign raising 230% of her initial goal to fund traveling to specific cities across the country to recreate the project using local women. The campaign garnered support from many media outlets, and hundreds of backers including filmmaker Spike Lee. (http://tlynnfaz.com/)
