“It makes me sad that young girls are still having to cope with this… I thought things might have improved a bit from when I was in grade school.”

First off, I really like the idea of this website…it’s hard, I think, for girls or women to verbalize these incidents, especially if it’s the first time you have been subjected to such harassment. I’m now a grown woman, aged 24, and have had my share of sexual harassment in life. Let me relate a … Continued

Constantly Harassed on the Street and at School

I’m 15 and am always being street harassed. Part of the time it’s at school. I have been assualted and verbally harassed. It doesn’t make me feel better. I gave into it before and let boys do what they wanted. But I got to much attention for my ass and things got way to out … Continued

Harassed for the first time

This happened to me today, as I was leaving the train station (like I do every day). I had been waiting in the station for a good 10 minutes with my friend, who was picked up before my mother got to the station to pick me up (I’m 16, I can’t drive). It’s a pretty … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: Schoolyard Bullies? I Think Not.

I’m a teenager from a smaller town. There’s not much to do except walk to the local park or elementary school playground. That day all I wanted was to listen to music on the swings, but there were some young teens that weren’t ok with that. A group of 5 boys not maybe more than … Continued

Two guys driving past yelled “Daaamn!’ at us. My friends laughed. I wasn’t even a teenager and was already being sexualized by … Continued

Sara Smith’s Story: Unwanted male attention

Today I was en route home from visiting my brother in Scranton with my mom and my sister. When we were at the gas station, an older lady’s dog had gotten out of her car so naturally I got out and helped her since the dog was in the street. After her dog had been … Continued

HOLLA ON THE GO: XC Tale.

I was running with a friend for cross country practice and an old man screamed “looking good ladies!” with a huge smile on his face. We are in high school. [got_back]

Helen’s Story: Back again.

Back again. Literally like 2 days ago, I was groped by a creeper who made no effort to deny groping me, and motioned for me to KEEP WALKING IN FRONT OF HIM so that he could grope me again! Had to chase him off with pepper spray. I already posted that story though. Today I … Continued
