Join us in our fight to bring Hollaback to 10 college campuses over the next year — and bring an end to sexual harassment on college campuses!
I was getting on my bike outside the English Faculty in Oxford and some gross guy yelled from a blue car that I was a “stupid slag”. Considering he was missing half his teeth, I think I’m still winning here.
Car full of men yelled, “Hey baby” and “sexy” at me on a dark street.
1) You dropped your smile in the puddle back there.
2) You’re looking fine as ever (whispered into my ear).
3) A man asked me what time it was, I told him, he walked away. But then when I was bending over putting something in my trunk, he had come back to grab my ass. (I did call the cops).
4) Him: “Come home with me.”
Me: “F**k off”
Him: “You f**king c**t”
My friend and I were going out downtown. While trying to park our car at a garage, two men pulled up next to us and were making obscene sexual gestures toward us. They pulled into the garage behind us so we decided to go to another garage.

Dear supporters –
It’s the final countdown. The clock is racing. We’re only 9 days away from our deadline and time is running out. We’ve still got over $20,000 to raise in order to bring Hollaback to 10 college campuses over the next year. In world where 51% of college men admit to sexually harassing their female counterparts, we don’t have time to spare.We know we can do it, and we’ve done it before. But we’ve never done this without you. So today, we’re turning towards you to ask a favor: can you take a stand against campus harassment and bullying? If you can help us, your ultimate reward is a world where campus harassment is no longer accepted as “normal,” and where everyone has a right to education in a safe environment. As a token of our gratitude, however, we’re giving away some Hollaback prizes as well. Every day that you post about our campaign on your social networks, you’ll automatically be entered to win a free t-shirt from Hollaback. We’ll be announcing one winner per day until our campaign ends on June 13th.

Followed by three young men on a dark street in Chicago, they taunted me: “Hey, stop. Don’t you have anything for us?” They snickered and I picked up the pace and they yelled catcalls, but thankfully didn’t pursue.
Feeling uncomfortable at a concert with flashing and groping.
As a graduate student, I was walking into the post office on campus when a man ran across the street and followed me in to tell me I had a “great ass.” I felt threatened, objectified, unsafe, and alone.
8:30am. Walking down a wide tree lined street in a suburban neighborhood passing large but cozy houses. Sort of McMansion Jr’s. A boy, maybe 16 or 17 years old, walks towards me on this otherwise vacant street. We lock a gaze and as I look into his greyish blue eyes, I feel an odd cold tingling of “off-ness” in his stare. I look away and as he passes me he grabs my shoulders so I stop. He then squeezes my breasts hard in his hands, and lets go and runs fast away from me. I remain stunned. Heart racing. Nauseous.
