Feminist Art Friday: Pussy Division
Fairly new to the street art scene, Pussy Division is using the urban landscape as a vehicle for building awareness around feminist issues. The Philly-based group of anonymous activists uses the same stickering, stenciling, and wheat-pasting tactics often employed by guerrilla street artists to speak out on important topics including rape, sexism, misogyny, and trans discrimination.
Most recently, Pussy Division teamed up with Slutwalk Philly to organize A March to End Rape Culture at the city’s iconic Love Park. On the same night, they displayed artwork at “Stop Telling Women to Smile in Philadelphia” alongside artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh.
Pussy Division’s modifications to street signs and spray-painted statements have been met with so much enthusiasm, materials to further the cause are often requested. As a result, similar pieces are beginning to crop up in cities like Pittsburgh, New York and Los Angeles.
