Week in our Shoes: Hollaback! Takes Action

Hi Everyone!

TDAO16

We’ve had a jam packed week full of planning and strategizing for the future of Hollaback! and are ending it by celebrating Trans Day of Action today in Washington Square Park. Our Heartmob Program Coordinator Desiree along with interns Jean and Lily will be marching through and around the park, uniting together towards dismantling the transphobia, racism, classism, sexism, ageism, ableism, homophobia and xenophobia that permeate our society.

 

Meanwhile, at Hollaback! Around the world…

 

Hollaback! Istanbul is hosting a Outdoor Training and Harassment Workshop this Saturday, June 25th.

 

Hollaback! Baltimore is hosting an Anti Street Harassment Day of Action this Saturday, June 25th.

 

We’re so proud that Hollaback! sites everywhere are spreading the word and taking action to fight back against the violence and harassment many have to experience everyday. Keep fighting on!

 

That’s it for now!

 

Holla and out!

Hollaback! Stands with Orlando

Hi Everyone,

 

This week as we healed, reflected and cared for one another, we also took executive director Emily May’s lead and began to take the opportunity to turn our pain into power. We encouraged people worldwide to share their own experiences with hate, harassment, or violence towards the LGBTQ community with the hashtag #thehatewefaceiseveryday. We recognized that the culture we live in,  where events like Orlando become inevitable, stem from the daily violence that LGBTQ people face just for being who they are. We not only will stand for those in Orlando, but those everywhere who fear for their safety each and everyday in the homophobic, racist, and transphobic culture that we live in.

 

This message was shared at Hollaback! around the world…

 

On Sunday June 12th, Hollaback! Peterborough attended a vigil at Confederation Park across from Peterborough’s City Hall to pay tribute to the 50 victims of the shooting and to pray for the 53 victims still in the hospital.

 

Hollaback! Croatia attended a vigil for Orlando at the Mimara Museum on  Thursday, June 16th.

 

Hollaback! Belfast attended a vigil for Orlando on Tuesday, June 14th.

Hollaback! Edinburgh attended a vigil for Orlando on Wednesday, June 15th in St. Andrew Square.

 

 

 

Hollaback! Baltimore attended a vigil for Orlando on Monday, June 13th at the Ynot Lot.

 

We stand in solidarity with Orlando. We stand in solidarity with those experiencing homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia. We stand for you.

 

With love and revolution,

 

-Hollaback!

HOLLA ON THE GO: Bike admirer

 

When I was riding my bike I watched a distant man smile and veer toward me. When I approached him he asked if he could borrow my bike. I said “no,” and once I pedaled past him, he started screaming expletives at me.

Cal Anderson Park Harasser

If you find yourself in Seattle’s Cal Anderson park, watch out for an older guy open and willing to call you a fucking bitch because you look “so sexy” and it’s “your fault he had to say something”. Stopped me in the middle of the path and blocked my way, and by stepping aside to keep walking, screamed I should die. reported to local authority in the vicinity, likely to harass again. Avoid walking through the park if you’re just passing by and by yourself. Even at 11am.

Announcing our story sharing contest with Jessica Valenti’s new book #SexObject

Tomorrow, Jessica Valenti’s book Sex Object will be released! In this memoir, Valenti explores the painful, funny, embarrassing, and sometimes illegal moments that shaped her adolescence and young adulthood in New York City, revealing a much shakier inner life than the confident persona she has cultivated as one of the most recognizable feminists of her generation. She documents incidents of harassment she’s faced, both online and in the streets, and the book will surely empower other folks experiencing harassment to speak up about it as well!

This is why we’re launching a story sharing contest under the hashtag #SexObject to give out swag from Dey Street Books, including a copy of the book and a tank top! Share your own story of harassment on Twitter using #SexObject, or submit a story anonymously to our site with the hashtag to be entered in the contest! We will notify you if you’ve won, and Dey Street Books will send you your free copy and other prizes — check them out below.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Followed to car and prevented from leaving

At ValuMarket I was approached outside the store by an older man saying I was attractive and cursing. I thanked him and said I had to go, and avoided walking anywhere near him. He followed me to my car and held the door as I entered my vehicle, asking for my number and being sexually suggestive. At the same time he kept saying “I just need a friend, will you be my friend? I like my friends to look good like you.” I finally told him I was married and again that I had to leave. He eventually backed down (only after I pretended to be married) and then he asked me for money.
