Week in our shoes: HOLLA::REV AFTERMATH

Hello Hollabackers!

bust party2Our first ever international speaker series on street harassment was followed by three incredible days with 20 of our global site leaders where we worked together to establish a global agenda for Hollaback!. We were inspired and humbled by their incredible vision for the future.

Check out the press from HOLLA::Revolution: Stop Street Harassment has a recap, as does The Source. Hollaback also gets mentions in this Daily Beast piece, this post on Vitamin W, and Michael Urbina’s list of 101 ways that men can be allies to women.

Here’s #hollarev’s impact in numbers:

  • 2743 Tweets and Facebook posts mentioning “#hollarev” with a 1.8 million potential reach

  • 572 of people watching Ustream

  • 150 people in attendance

  • 17 people who spoke

We also want to thank our incredible summer interns, Maya Flippen and Sarah Scriven for their powerful work this summer. Thanks to them, Hollaback!’s 2013 State of the Streets report is near complete, and Hollaback! will be issuing an intersectional guide to understanding street harassment later this year. Our badass site leader Britni de la Cretaz will be taking over compiling a week in our shoes until our fall interns start. We’re still recruiting, so please apply!
