"I've begged." "Yes, I have eaten out of garbage cans. I've had coffee thrown in my face. They tell me to get a job. They don"t know your problem. If you stand in a food place looking pitiful enough, someone will buy you a sandwich. I've had people buy me a meal and bring it back to me, throw it in the garbage and tell me to get it." -Resident Of N.Y.C. Women's Shelter In Collaboration With Guerrilla Girls And Artist & Homeless Collaborative


Acquisition Number: 1997-025
Translation: He pedido limosna “Sí, he comido de los basureros. Me han tirado café a la cara. Me dicen que consiga trabajo. Ellos no conocen tus problemas. Si te quedas parado en algún lugar donde venden comida y das bastante lástima, es probable que alguien te compre un sándwich. Ha habido personas que me han comprado comida para después tirarla a la basura y decirme que la recoja.” —Habitante de un albergue para mujeres en la ciudad de Nueva York, en colaboración con Guerrilla Girls y Artist & Homeless Collaborative.
