HOLLA ON THE GO: “When I was 15…”

When I was 15, I went to sleep at a friends house in her basement. I woke up to a male acquaintance shoving his fingers inside me. When I was 17, I was date raped in the parent’s bedroom of a mutual friend, during a house party. The next day he was joking about how … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: “I was 13…”

Just one of many stories of sexual harassment, but one of the ones that stuck with me the most… I was about 13, I looked older than my age, but definitely didn’t look like an adult. I was sitting in a chair at the library, texting someone, and I noticed a man standing over me. … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: “As it seems to be the norm…”

HOLLA ON THE GO: “At 35 I thought…”

At 35 I thought that catcalling and unwanted gestures and looks were going to somehow start to decrease but that is not the case. The older I get it almost seems like the more it happens. I make frequent trips to hardware stores due to the fact that I am part owner of a contracting … Continued
