Why a Post-it?
I felt like the sexual harassment I experienced was invisible to the space where it happened…unnoticed, gone and silenced.
Post-its are fantastic reminders used by planning enthusiasts world-wide. The little yellow paper offers a simple recollection of what happened, and in that way pins the act to that specific place.
Of course, the Post-it isn’t stuck to the ground. It may not even be read. But seeing it lying there, like litter on the ground, recaptures some of the feelings that I felt after it happened.
And - importantly too - through writing, placing and re-posting this Post-it, it has helped me feel empowered about an experience that was precisely the opposite of empowering.
