Here’s what the HOLLAs around the world have been up to:
Hollaback! West Yorkshire held a workshop at Bradford college in collaboration with victim support, Bradford Women’s Forum & the college.
Hollaback! Brussels gave a talk on “Violence against Lesbians: On the intersection between sexist and lesbophobic violence” at LFestival Brussels. They also held their Hollaback! Offline N°4 event, the 4th event of the series and represented HB along with Gent at the “March of Silence,” a March calling for an end to rape culture organized by Flemish Women’s Lobby for International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Hollaback! Halifax rightfully called out politician for careless behaviour and invited locals to contact his office and suggest resources for him to educate himself about race in local & global contexts.
The movement is growing everyday!
HOLLA and out!

On the seventh day of our 31 days of HOLLA, we’re heading up north and sending a big thank you to Hollaback! Ottawa.
This year, Hollaback Ottawa started a city-wide conversation about street harassment, pushed public transit to address harassment & successfully pulled off the first research report on levels of harassment in the city. Amazing!
