HOLLA ON THE GO: “I was on a bench…”

I was on a bench in the shopping center breastfeeding my three-week-old baby. I would normally have gone to a cafe but she was screaming and I didn’t want to make her wait so I sat on a bench in the center. My baby was latched on so all you could see was the side … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: “I have lived in London…”

I have lived in London since January 2017 and I have been harassed in public spaces more times than I can count. An old man in a stationary shop touching me and making sexual allusions to me. A group of teenage boys violently pushing me in the tube’s stairs while laughing, and following me on … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: “At the crosswalk…”

Man in gray Jeep leaned far out his window and yelled about my “smelly pussy” as I jogged down a quiet road early on a Sunday morning. He promptly sped off. I couldn’t see his face or his plate. This is infuriating and tiresome. It happens to varying degrees (usually not this aggressive) on a … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: “Car Street Harassment…”

I was in the car with my mother. We were heading home after running errands together. A pick-up truck full of men kept waving and excessively honking at us while at the red light. Finally, my mom rolled down the window thinking maybe there was something wrong. Instead, the driver gestured to me to lift … Continued
