Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
A promo for the camp, which you can watch below, is a new approach on tackling the topic of street harassment. Instead of the serious op-eds about how threatening the phenomenon can be to women, Janelle blasts the offensive absurdity of it with some spot-on sarcasm.
Just to make sure that viewers don’t take the tone of the video too seriously, one woman pops up on screen to deliver some reality stating, “Maybe it’s your f*ckin’ face, and you don’t feel like smiling.”
By the way, another great reason not to smile? Getting hassled by randoms on the street that want you to look happy to seem them even though you’re not.
