Stop Telling Women to Smile is a street art project that addresses gender based street harassment. The project consists of a series of portraits of women who have talked about their experiences with harassment. The portraits are designed into posters, including text that is inspired by the subject’s experiences. Street harassment is a serious issue that affects women worldwide. This project takes women’s voices, and faces, and puts them in the street—creating a bold presence for women in an environment where they are so often made to feel uncomfortable and unsafe. For additional information on Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s work, please visit
