Thanks to our friends at Global Sister for helping to get the word out about Hollaback! Hollaback has come a long way since 2005. As if 15,000 readers a month wasn’t enough, now we are Jay-Z endorsed:
GSO: And finally, if you could have any international activist or celebrity endorse HollabackNYC and focus on the anti street harassment initiative, who would it be?
HBNYC: I live in a cultural cave, but I couldn’t help to notice the new Jay-Z song, Empire State of Mind. The lyrics go: “yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back, for [drivers] it ain’t for, they act like they forgot how to act.” Now, I don’t know about you, but I only know one HollaBack that deals with cab drivers who ‘forgot how to act.’ Until Jay-Z himself tells us to stop: we’re taking that as a ringing endorsement!
