On the 13th day of our 31 days of HOLLA campaign, we’re highlighting the work of Hollaback! Italy!
This year alone, Hollaback! Italy has doubled in size, adding on three awesome volunteers (welcome to the team!). They’ve held two chalk walks in Milan and pushed the public transportation agency to create anti-harassment campaigns on buses and the metro.
Way to go team Hollaback! Italy! Show them some support and share your story at http://italia.ihollaback.org/

I was walking my dog one lovely summer day, as I was walking from my house, around the usual walking spots I go with my dog, a man in a beat up car decides to honk rapidly at me and I turn around then he rolls down the window and yells “YOU’RE SO FUCKING HOT!” Wide eyed I decided to keep walking and got more annoying honking.
I am 14 years old.
I don’t want to heat your disgusting comments or your loud honks.

I was walking alone past a man loitering on the sidewalk arguing with a woman. As I walked by he said WORK IT GIRL WORK IT. I turned around and Said FUCK OFF. He said I was a bitch and a dumbass.
When I walked back to my car, he said – I gave you compliment – I said, this is sexual harassment you don’t talk to a woman like that who is alone on the street. If you feel dis-empowered in the world you can’t take it out on me. don’t talk to me like that don’t talk to anyone like that. I got dirty looks from the women around him. He said I didn’t even know what a woman was.
