HOLLA ON THE GO: “Wrong on so many levels”

I just got cat called to by 12 year olds. That is wrong on so many levels.

I've got your back!

Val’s Story: Non stop creepers

I was walking home from work when a group of college-aged guys drove by. One of them yelled “Pussy!” out of the car window.

Then just a minute later, I walked past an older man getting something out of the trunk of his car and he looked me up and down and said “Heeeeeeeeeeeey.”

Hollaback! sites around the world are making this last week of summer count! This week,

Hollaback! Ottawa marched in their Capital Pride parade (with amazing outfits!)

Hollaback! Bahamas had a press heavy week – including Bahamas at Sunrise and the radio show “Connected.” On top of all that, they held their first Educational Ambassador Training (on Constitutional Amendment Bills going to referendum) at the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas.

The Hollaback! Mothership‘s deputy director Debjani Roy had an op-ed published in XOJane.

Hollaback! Boston began conversations with Uber on creating safer riding environments in their city.

Hollaback! Columbus held a local meeting and info session, bringing together volunteers and folks interested in ending street harassment in their city.

Hollaback! London is taking the UK by storm this week with their Good Night Out campaign. The crowd-funding for their campaign just launched – so spread the news! The team also made waves over at the BBC, after they were interviewed to discuss the recent attack faced by a woman at the Notting Hill Carnival.

Great work team! 

Until next week,

HOLLA and out!

Christena’s Story: “‘Highlights’ of my day”

Here are the “highlights” of my day yesterday:
I had three men catcall at me (“Hey baby,” “Hey little lady,” “hey pretty girl”).
I had two men I don’t know at all wave at me accompanied with a smug face.
I also heard a whistle.
I heard some mansplaining at work also (“Why don’t you smile more? You would be so much prettier if you smiled.”)
Here’s the stupidest part of the whole story- all of this happened in my car. I didn’t even look particularly cute yesterday. This just goes to show that it doesn’t matter what measures you take, men who catcall at women are pigs.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Smile requesting harassers

On a sunny Thursday morning at 10am, I was walking my bike to the bike shop. A guy walking toward me stepped to the side to, I believe, let me pass but instead he stared at me and said, “Smile. Smile!” I said, “don’t tell me what to do, asshole.” So he stood there screaming, “Bitch! Bitch! Bitch!” Until I was a block away.

I've got your back!
