This paper researches the topic of graffiti vandalism and sexualized out door advertising.
This paper suggests that both graffiti and highly sexualized outdoor advertising
should be understood as forms of street harassment. Research exists charting the
manner in which graffiti creates fear in public space and fear of crime is something
experienced by women more frequently than men. There has been no similar
research done on outdoor advertising. Using ideas from fpinist geography and
criminology this paper argues that the socially exclusive consequences of the fears of
crime brought about by graffiti and outdoor advertising can be understood as being
similar to the consequences of street harassment. The framework of social exclusion
will be used to suggest that, like graffiti, highly sexualized outdoor advertispents
constitute an important public policy concern.
