Hollaback! Victoria marched at the Victoria Pride Parade this weekend and handed out these niffy lollipops.

Hollaback! Boston participated in the Supreme Rally for Women’s Equality, a rally protesting the Supreme Court rulings on the Hobby Lobby and Buffer Zone cases which were huge steps back for the women’s health and reproductive rights. Co-director Britni was interviewed by CBS Boston at the rally which can be found here.

Hollaback! Italia hosted a super rad Chalk Walk this past weekend. Pics of the event can be found here!

Hollaback! Bahamas held a session with over 60 7th and 8th grade students as part of the Forward Onto College and Upward to Success program. They spoke about street harassment and held small group discussions where students analyzed the roots of street harassment and ways they can help prevent it from happening. Hollaback! Bahamas was also on Guardian Radio 96.9FM where they discussed activism in the Bahamas and how citizens need to become more involved in making change happen. 

Always awesome to see HOLLAs doing kickass things. Til next time-

HOLLA and out!
