cards against sexual harassment

Have you ever experienced street harassment?
Do you dread the warmer times of the year, because people comment on your body all the time?
What are the situations that you find most annoying?
Do you sometimes want to intervene in situations that you find yourself in, but can’t find the right words/ don’t know what to do?

It can be hard to find a verbal comeback to catcalling or other forms of street harassment. Handing someone a card can be a good way to intervene, to break up the situation and slightly confuse the aggressor; you regain power, without having to stick around and give an explanation.

Oleksandra Lychak is an artist from Ukraine. She studied at the Art Studio and the School of Contemporary Art and works in different techniques such as photo art, abstract painting, installation, and more. She had several exhibitions in Ukraine and Belarus. She likes to think that art exists to expand the scope of our perception and to get rid of prejudices and stereotypes. Her work is about the formation of female sexuality, freedom and violence – physical, sexual, psychological. She sees violence as a lack of freedom to be yourself. In her artworks she often uses personal belongings, clothes, lingerie.
