Anti-street harassment campaign “Stop Telling Women to Smile” hits Oakland
March 8, 2014

In 2012, Brooklyn illustrator/painter Tatyana Fazlalizadeh started “Stop Telling Women to Smile,” a series of large-scale posters, featuring portraits of women with instructive anti-harassment captions, that she wheatpasted in public places. To further help spread the message, Fazlalizadeh has taken her series on the road, creating city-specific posters, installing them across the country and abroad, and asking for help from local women who want to be involved in her campaign. 

Locally, the “Stop Telling Women to Smile” exhibit will show at Betti Ono Gallery in Oakland, where last month, Fazlalizadeh was an artist-in-residence and led workshops and discussions about gender-based street harassment. The resulting show, which opened March 7, will feature new works created during the workshops, along with posters from previous city campaigns. 

Fazlalizadeh will not be at Friday’s opening, but if you’re interested in meeting the artist, she’ll be back at the gallery on March 20 to lead a panel discussion on women and street art. ”Stop Telling Women to Smile” runs through April 17. 



Washington Post reporter Brigid Schulte was ‘Overwhelmed' by work, family, and all of the little things on her to-do list.  Curious about time-management, she sought out the advice of a time use expert who examined logs of how she spends her days.  “I think that was one of the biggest revelations is that leisure is really in the eyes of the beholder,” she says. Her book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The Time, studies time use and gender roles in the workplace and at home. So how did she clear some of that mental clutter? Part of it was changing her approach to the to-do list:

I think all of the strategies for us to cram more stuff into our calendar is really not the answer; it’s figuring out what’s important to you and making time to do what’s most important first. … That to-do list will never go away. If you have this if-then mentality, you’ll never get to “then.” I have trashed the to-do list to help my brain. I do get it all out. I write it all down because then it gives me mental peace … but right now I try to do one thing a day and if I can do it, that’s great. … And I also give myself permission not to do it.
