HOLLA ON THE GO: “he left in cuffs”

Just walking down the sidewalk at 10:30am on a Saturday, when a guy decides to help himself to my butt. He was surprised when I spun around, screamed at him, and chased him half a block until he lost his shoe and a police officer working the grocery store ran up to us. He left in cuffs.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Standing Up and Saying Something

On Tuesday morning, I was walking from my job to the bank (that is only three mins away by foot) to drop off my job’s deposit. This was 9 in the morning, and as I was walking, a man in his car pulled up to me and asked if I wanted to watch him “jerk off”. I was so shocked and upset and afraid, that I quickly yelled, “No! I’m calling the police!” Sadly I didn’t catch his license plate, but be careful out there! This can happen to anyone so please protect yourselves and use the buddy system.

Week In Our Shoes: New Intern Edition

Hello Hollas!
Screen shot 2015-06-11 at 3.36.13 PMIt’s been an exciting week here at the HQ. This week we welcomed three new interns for the summer: April, Eunie, and Julia. The interns are excited to be helping out with Hollaback!’s communications and programs, including HeartMob.

We filmed our final two vlogs of the series this week and will be releasing them soon! We stepped outside of the office this week to visit City Hall in New York to take the 6th Annual Father’s Day Pledge to End Gender Violence. Organized by CONNECT and Council Member Laurie A. Cumbo, the participants pledged to end violence in our homes, schools and communities.

And here’s what Holla’s around the world have been up to:

Hollaback! Vancouver continues to fight street harassment and is kicking ass in the press with Good Night Out!

We have our eye on the proposal  of a new anti-catcalling law that could make street harassment punishable by fine. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. In the meantime, check out the work of Hollaback! Buenos Aires as they work to end street harassment in their city.

Hollaback! Alberta attended the first annual Women & Trans Festival at the 35th Edmonton Pride. It’s so awesome to have Hollaback! represent during such an important time for the rights of transgender people!

Screen shot 2015-06-11 at 3.45.34 PMHollaback! London will be co-hosting Holla::REV London in just less than two weeks! Join us on June 23rd to hear speakers and performers including Laura Bates, Emily May, representatives from Sex Worker Open University, Bisi Alimi, Susuana Antubam, Samayya Afzal, Bryony Beynon & Julia Gray, Sauna Youth and more!

Great job this week across the globe, team!  

Holla and out!

He came up from behind me after following me down an aisle, grabbed my arm and tried to pull me around, and before he could do anther hunt else, I elbowed him and ran to the front of the store.
