End Street Harassment in Philly, Pussy Division’s Newest Installation Demands

April 14, 2016

This summer marks the 3rd year that Philly-based collective Pussy Division has used street art, guerrilla activism, and online outreach to call attention to – and demand action on – “catcalling” in Philadelphia. (Among many other things.)

Absolutely LOVE their ever-evolving campaigns that call attention to issues related to oppression and inequality in ways that grab people’s attention in the public space. In the few minutes alone that I was photographing their newest installation (above) on Broad street, between Spruce and Pine, no less than four people stopped to look and even photograph the piece.

Great work, y’all!

    I didn’t get a photo this morning, but they’ve got another installation at 9th and Wharton on the fence around the empty lot where the popup was last summer.
