Last week’s video of a woman walking the streets of NYC for 10 hours proved what Lena Dunham already knew: everyone in NYC is subject to catcalls. And it immediately became fodder for parodies. Here’s the latest, filmed in part on the Lower East Side — it was sent over by Scott Rogowsky, who just celebrated three years of his live talk show Running Late.
Lena Dunham’s new memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, is written with just the sort of unabashed honesty and self-depricating wit you’d expect from the voice of her generation — or at least, “the voice of a generation.” And it also reveals the extent to which her personal experiences — some of them , some of them hilarious — have seeped into her work.
Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is not what you would call strident—an obnoxious word too often (smirklingly) associated with women who care about gender equality. The artist responsible for the Stop Telling Women to Smile project is polite and soft-spoken, and she also happens to be wearing a t-shirt that proudly reads, “Feminist as Fuck.”
