Happy Friday Hollaback!’ers,
Hollaback! sites around the world are busy this week:
Hollaback! Berlin talked about feminism and pop culture at the “Bundes Frauen*InterTrans*Konferenz” of the Grüne Jugend in Leipzig.
Hollaback Des Moines held a monthly meet up and tabled at the Iowa Student Power Convergence.
…And participated in a Russian radio panel discussion on sexism!
Hollaback! Bahamas Trained the trainers! The session with COBUS (College of The Bahamas Union of Students) focused on the Constitutional Amendment Bills regarding gender equality was a huge success.
The team also guest lectured a class at COB on gender issues and the Constitutional Amendment Bills.
Great job this week team!
HOLLA and out!

Guy working at a cell phone booth near the mall food court called “hi sweetie” as I passed. I’d never seen his face before. I told him not to call me that and not to give nicknames to strangers because they don’t like that. He didn’t take me seriously, but he got told.

Dude standing right in the middle of my path on the sidewalk, rubbing himself quite visibly and leering at me. When I asked him what was wrong with him, he asked me if I wanted to do it.

I was walking along a park path around my neighborhood this afternoon having a conversation with a friend on the phone about birth control and reproductive health.
Two young, professional-looking men on expensive racing bicycles wearing expensive gear slow behind me, listening in. One of them shouts “big black dick!” to me and they rode away, surprising me of their presence, giving me no time to respond. Proof that racist misogyny knows no income bracket.

I was walking up the hill on my way home and had a bunch of guys hanging out of their car yelling ‘hey sexy’ and other things. One of them tried to slap my ass from the window and the car got very close to me! I was unable to say anything or so anything because it happened so fast!
