Week In Our Shoes: HOLLA for Change Edition

Hey Hollabackers!

This week, Hollaback! was featured in City Paper, Belgium Time, CONTESSA GAYLES · Multimedia Journalist, Black Youth Project, Writog, State News, and NY City Lens. Also, Thee Kats Meoww just released this awesome video from our rally earlier this month!

Finally, check out this video from STAGE: Students Taking Action for Gender Equity. In celebration of the launch of our Holla 101: An Educator’s Guide to Street Harassment back in February, STAGE hit the streets and held their own Chalk Walk, in an effort to reclaim their city’s sidewalks. The video is a recap of their walk!

Here’s what HOLLAs around the world have been up to:

Hollaback! Appalachian Ohio held a 2 hour workshop at Hocking College on Assertive Responses to street harassment and Bystander Intervention.

Hollaback! Baltimore was interviewed on WYPR’s Maryland Morning radio show talking about their Safer Spaces campaign. Check it out here! On Tuesday and Thursday, they co-sponsored an event with Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, artist of the Stop Telling Women to Smile project.  Tatyana held an open and casual discussion about street harassment and the Stop Telling Women to Smile project.

Hollaback! Houston visited with some inspiring students at St. Catherine’s Montessori who wanted to know more about the Hollaback! movement. They are taking on some great feminist topics and are ready to take action. Sounds fantastic!

Hollaback! LA made this kick ass new postcard (pictured above). And it will soon be available in Spanish! They were also mention in this local podcast.

Hollaback! Philly was at Awesome Con this week, talking with people about how cosplay =/= consent!

Hollaback! Tucson was at the University of Arizona’s Take Back the Night event for a night of healing and solidarity.

Til next week,

HOLLA and out!
