“Stop Telling Women to Smile” is an exhibition of new works by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. The work is designed to be placed on the street to add the presence of strong women in that environment to combat street harassment.

“I’ve put them in places where I’ve personally been harassed, and where I know street harassment is prevalent—which, honestly is everywhere,” Fazlalizadeh told FastCompany’s Zak Stone. “So, I’ve placed them on mailboxes in downtown business areas, on abandoned buildings in residential areas, on spare walls in tourist areas. Anywhere I can.”

The exhibit will open in Brooklyn tonight but if you can’t make it, take a look at Fazlalizadeh’s work on her Tumblr.

More information about the show is below.
