HOLLA ON THE GO: Photos taken of me

I was walking my dog around 5:45pm on a Monday when I noticed a man standing next to his bike taking photos of me as I walked by. When I passed I turned around and he was taking photos of my butt. I started yelling at him and insisted that he was not allowed to take photos of me and to show me his phone. I could see the photos of my butt on his phone but he got on his bike and rode away before deleting them. When I called the police they provided no support.

Catcalled at the supermarket

I was shopping at the supermarket for my flat and a slimy teenager told me I had a nice ass and catcalled/verbally harassed me. Not that it’s relevant but it is still worth saying I was wearing my vans, jeans and an oversized mickey mouse sweater. Even worse his parents didn’t care.

Drive by comments on my appearance and cat-calls. Was SO CLOSE to making it home today without being harassed!

A Week in Our Shoes

Week in Our Shoes: Nine New Sites Edition!

Happy weekend Hollas,


This week at the Headquarters, we are celebrating the leadership of nine new Hollaback! sites! These teams have gone through intensive training and community outreach and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do next. Join us in welcoming leading thinkers and movement makers in Costa RicaDetroit, USAJakarta, IndonesiaLawrence, KS, USAMadrid, SpainOslo, NorwayOxford, UKRiyadh, Saudi ArabiaTrinidad and Tobago. Check out their websites to volunteer, send a kind message, or to keep up with the launch events they’ve planned.

Emily and Jae were at Nexus Youth Summit 2016 this week in NYC, and Debjani held an important interview on PX11 Morning News to discuss Gretchen Carlson’s experience of harassment. Also, big news — this week HeartMob won “best new product” at Netroots Nation! We’ve been having a dance party all week long.


Here’s what Hollaback! sites around the world have been up to this week:


Hollaback! Vancouver‘s Good Night Out program had a heavy presence at Bass Coast festival. These folks are doing amazing work creating safer spaces in festival, club, and concert culture to ensure thanetrootsnation2t we all have a good night (and weekend) out. They write, “when creating a community with intention those elements of the status quo have no place, and you do all you can to both challenge and resist them – this includes prioritizing conversations about safety and consent.” If you’re interested in joining up, send them an email at [email protected] for training, or just to tell them that they are awesome.

Hollaback! Halifax site leader Rebecca was featured on CBC news radio, discussing the importance of oversight for Taxis and debating dashcam use. Have an opinion on the matter and want to lend your voice? Reach out to the always inspiring Hollaback! Halifax through twitter at @HollabackHRM

Hollaback! Detroit held a recent workshop on understanding and combatting harassment with Girls Rock Detroit. They’ll have more great workshops coming up – so stay tuned to this new site!


We couldn’t be more excited about the amazing work we’re seeing from site leaders around the world this summer! If you’re looking to support your local Hollaback!, check out their site and support pages, or volunteer by sending an email to [email protected] – we’d love to hear from you!


Holla and out –
