Feminist Art Friday Feature: Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

In her own words:

I think when we talk about street harassment we’re talking about a type of power and privilege that’s being exerted over women in public spaces. And whenever we talk about any type of oppression or privilege, there’s always the other types of oppression or privilege that come in to play. That includes race, sexuality, class, gender, etc. How do queer women experience street harassment, how do trans women experience it? As the project is growing, this is all stuff that I’m trying to be more aware of and articulate in the work." -Tatyana Fazlalizadeh
