Women Who Don't Smile Have Had It With Being Asked To

Jenny Block | Posted 01.19.2017 | Queer Voices
Jenny Block

A smile is a symbol; an indication of pleasure, affection, amusement, or desire. To require it of someone is to demand a demonstration of feelings that are often false. By claiming our own faces and refusing to smile on demand, we symbolically reclaim ownership over our entire bodies.

That is what standing up for women looks like. It's pushing past the fear of being seen as weak or anti-male, to realizing that any steps towards gender equality make us all stronger.

Let me be clear: It's not okay to honk at a woman while she's running, or walking, or sitting by the side of the road smoking a cigarette. It's not okay to drive up next to her, as if you're about to kidnap her, and tell her she's a real gem.
