Lindsey from Minneapolis films everyday chauvinism in the form of “compliments” she’s gotten from guys while walking down the street.
She makes awesome little cards that she hands out to the people harassing her too, you can find them on her website.
It’s basically the awesomest wee project ever, and something that hopefully shows just how annoying, rude and just plain…nasty it can for female humans doing something as simple as walking.
I especially like it when she questions the harassers WHY they feel the need to comment and they get all flustered and can’t think of an answer, or alternatively, seem to think she should somehow be grateful for the attention. Either way, it’s amusing.
There’s also this website, the brilliant ‘Stop Telling Women To Smile’, created by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh.
