Happy Friday Hollas! Another Friday, and another latest edition of “ A Week In Our Shoes”. It’s the little things that matter and with that said, we at HQ would like to thank all our Hollas, both new and old, for continuing to fight alongside us to end harassment in all its forms.
Around The World
“If you can conceive it, your heart could believe it, and you can achieve it” -Muhammed Ali. Shout Out to Hollaback!Jakarta on their #ReformasiDikorupsi action, making a difference nationally whilst also inspiring others wolrd-wide to take a stance on something they believe in. Recently, Hollaback!Jakarta took to their social media pages that most of their harassment reports included forms of sexual assault, catcalling, whistling, sexist jokes and much more. Harassment in any shape or form is NOT okay. PERIOD! Thus, #ReformasiDikorupsi is a safe haven for Bystanders to not be afraid to voice their opinions and demand their rights. This action will impact our futures, forever. If we can support each other, especially through trials and tribulations, we have the POWER to change the world, together.
