Here’s what the HOLLAs around the world have been up to:
Hollaback! Polska began a campaign against Tomasz Guział, a local politician. After the rape of a woman jogging through a public park, Guział posted victim blaming comments to his twitter. After the case was dropped by police because they were not able to locate the criminal Guział began to publicly state that there was no rape to begin with, demanding proof from the victim and apologies from feminists. HB!P then started this FB Event. Guział shortly issued a non-apology to HB!P and HB!’s comments in response went viral.
Hollaback! Berlin will be giving a talk at the University in Halle, Germany titled “Julia Brilling: Alltäglicher Sexismus, Street Harassment und die HollaBack!-Bewegung” or “Julia Brilling: Everyday Sexism, Street Harassment and th Hollaback! Movement”
Way to bring in the New Year Hollas!
