Does this exhibit challenge or perpetuate stereotypes? | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

An exhibit featuring the photography of 12 women from Iran and the Arab world will open this week at the prestigious Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. Entitled “She Who Tells a Story,” the exhibit includes the work of Jananne Al-Ani, Boushra Almutawakel, Gohar Dashti, Rana El Nemr, Lalla Essaydi, Shadi Ghadirian, Tanya Habjouqa, Rula Halawani, Nermine Hammam, Rania Matar, Shirin Neshat, and Newsha Tavakolian. Though many of the women now live in the united States, they hail from Jordan, Yemen, Morocco, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon and Iran, which, despite the description in the New York Times, is not part of the Arab world.

Comment: Is there any point in standing up to street harassment? | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
A friend of mine was on a train in Sydney this week with her bike at her side when she noticed a man staring at her from the next carriage.She looked down and looked up again. The man was still staring at her, and by then his friend was too.Annoyed, she glowered at them, hoping to shame their stares away. But it didn't work. In fact, much to her horror, another man sitting near her began to stare too. She pulled out her phone and took a photo of them in protest, but they kept right on staring.
