The Artdog Image of Interest
August is a month when many students start back to school–many in new schools. I’m dedicating my Images of Interest for the next several weeks to a reminder that as young girls grow into young women, whether they’re in public or private schools or in college, they often are subject to gender-based street harassment–catcalls, comments on their looks, etc. They don’t need this grief, but all too many experience it.
This month’s Images of Interest are dedicated to those maturing girls and young women, as a reminder that we adults in the community have a responsibility to call out harassment wherever it manifests. I am deeply grateful to artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, whose work I featured last March.
In this month of Back to School and Women’s Equality day, I’m delighted to share more of her “Stop Telling Women to Smile” public art project.
