Because everyone deserves some respect. How would you feel if your abuelita, mami, or hermana was on the receiving end of catcalls?

She’s letting people know that women are strong.

There was a scholarship contest that Hasky learned about based on the theme: Design for A Better World.

“After ruling out themes I could not relate to, I was inspired by a group of street workers in Panama while they shouted obscenities at me,” Hasky wrote on her Facebook. “Inspired by conversations with friends who have experienced a similar forms of harassment and the unbearable discomfort it produces inside us all, I went ahead and created a few #GRLPWR designs and turned it all in.”

Hasky’s art has evolved and grown since moving to Barcelona.
