Justine’s Story: Creeper at the station

I was walking to the train station at lunch time when a man crossed the road toward me while I was waiting to cross the other way. He stood right next to me, trying to look down my top and talking on the phone about what he would like to do to ‘this girl’.

When I began to cross he yelled ‘look at that ass go’ and followed me for five minutes, stopping and starting so I wouldn’t think he followed me. I walked up some stairs and he touched my leg and I think he took a photo up my skirt.

Once I reached the train station he kept watching me for a few more minutes but I didn’t move so he eventually left. I was really scared and thought he might grab me or worse.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “I felt violated”

I want to hollaback!

I was introduced to a guy by a friend back in highschool and from the first day I met him I did not like him. The first day I hung out with him he attempted to put his hand between my legs, to which I pushed him away. Unfortunately that was not the last time I felt violated by this prick. Since the first day there have been many times that I would see him and he would walk behind me, following me and call out “damn nice ass”. He has also sent me really perverted texts.

Rmutairi’s Story: “I felt unsafe”

I am a Muslim woman living in Kuwait and I cover from head to toe in black, including a face veil that shows only the eyes. In the mornings I like to park in a public park near the sea to meditate in my car. This is the second time the same guy approached me in his car, parking next to me and staring at me. Today I took some photos and got his car plate number and am considering reporting it to the police. What bothers me is that I felt unsafe and I drove away, abandoning my meditation session. If it happens again, I will take more photos, stand my ground and honk the horn until hopefully HE leaves.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Groped on the way to work

I had decided to take a short-cut from the cantonment Stn through a small mound as I was late for work. I saw a group of dogs around its base. I was about to take the longer way when I saw a man walking towards the mound. I decided to follow him. On reaching the peak I saw another dog & started to turn around when he grabbed my left arm grazing my breast. I shrugged it off and continued down. He once again groped my left breast. I pushed him off me & slid down & ran as fast as I could to work.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “The street I live on”

Walking down THE STREET I LIVE ON only to have a man say to me in passing “Hey blondie, can I smell your pussy?”

Not okay, not appropriate, and I’m not going to let it intimidate me.

HOLLA ON THE GO: “I felt disgusted”

I was waiting at a bus stop when an older man approached me and asked what time the bus got there. Once on, he started jacking off into his hat on the bench next to mine. I feel disgusted.

Worst part is, I was carrying some materials of a school project so he knew I was under aged.
