Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn artist who tried something new to speak up for herself—and address street harassment—through art.
Mostly known for her oil paintings, her latest work focuses on what woman want to say to pests, putting a face to the stories that otherwise fall into silence every day.

The main message women want clueless men to understand is simple: we’re not grateful for it. We didn’t ask you. We have other things to pay attention to, besides you. We are not here for you. We owe you nothing, not the slightest courtesy, and certainly not a smile.
