“Stop Telling Women to Smile” is a street art series by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. She says the work “attempts to address gender based street harassment by placing drawn portraits of women, composed with captions that speak directly to offenders, outside in public spaces.”

“The project consists of a series of portraits of women, she explains, “women who I have sat talked with about their experiences with harassment. The portraits are designed into posters, including text that is inspired by the subject’s experiences. And then I wheat paste.”

Lindsay Bottos - Documenting the reality of online harassment.

Lindsay Bottos is a 21-year-old Photography student at the Maryland Institute College of Art. As part of her evolving artistic expression,  she posts a lot of self-portraits online.

It’s actually a grave threat to the development of our artistic futures, as real critics and public discussion have been shouted out by immature and cruel trolls.

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
