Ok. I was on the #5 out of the city of course during rush hour today. The train was late… late and really crowded. It was such a beautiful day and I had a really nice new skirt on because I met a potential bf for lunch. Oh wait I’m 16 and doing an internship … Continued
On Monday, I was on the F train going to 23rd Street today when I saw this weirdo. This middle age man in his 40’s wearing glasses, white shirt and cap with a belly was on my train looking at me and jerking off. I had been sitting on the corner of the car and … Continued
There was a guy who kept pressing his crotch really firmed into my butt on the 1 train, last week at 5:30pm. I couldn’t tell if the train was really THAT crowded and every time I looked behind me to see if there was anyone behind him, his grill was all up in my face … Continued
I was walking back to the Credit Suisse building from lunch through Madison Sq Park, and one walkway out was filled with construction workers on both sides. As women walked by, this group of 15+ men would hold up placards with numbers written on them (1-10)— and that’s not the most ridiculous part. I asked … Continued
This morning on the F train I inadvertently sat kitty-corner to a toucher. I boarded a Manhattan bound train at 7th Avenue around 10:15 AM. In the backwards-facing seat next to me was a nondescript guy in a white t-shirt. Thick dark hair, glasses, jeans, looked like early 20’s. My peripheral vision is pretty sharp, … Continued

First, Amy Zimmer. Our crush on Metro writer Amy Zimmer has been going on for almost three years now, but today’s article left us swooning all over again. Second and third: our sister agencies RightRides and Girls for Gender Equity. That’s why we’re joining with them and others to create the “Subway Safety Coalition.” We … Continued
Finally, Hollaback’s long term dream of getting anti-harassment ads in the subway has come true. We want to thank Councilmember Vallone, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, City Council Candidate Yetta Kurland, RightRides, and Girls for Gender Equity for showing tremendous leadership on this. And to the MTA: the women of NYC thank you.
I was groped at around 2:30pm today on 8th St and Broadway near NYU. I was coming out of the subway when this man was walking towards me on Broadway. As I move to walk around him he grabbed my ass. I screamed and grabbed my phone to take a pic and he says: “I’m … Continued
