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!

On the fourth day of our 31 days of HOLLA campaign, we’re highlighting the amazing work of team Hollaback! Fredericksburg.
This year alone, Hollaback! Fredericksburg has co-hosted two film screenings of “Half the Sky” with a local teen group (GIRL: Girls in Real Life), featuring a panel of badass individuals who work in local rape crisis, dv, and youth empowerment organizations to discuss gender based violence and the impact on our own community.
During International Anti-Street Harassment Week, Hollaback! Fredericksburg organized an Anti-Slut Shaming/ Anti-Style Shaming photo campaign. They participated in their local universities, and Kana participated in the first HOLLA::Revolution to discuss gender violence interventions within music therapy.
Go Hollaback! Fredericksburg!
