HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was carrying groceries home from the store when a dude stuck his head out the passenger window, staring, smiling, and waving repeatedly. A few minutes later, a guy drove by and whooped at me. Ugh.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Abuso Verbal

Un desconocido me dijo esta mañana “uuuuhhh me tiene loquito” mientras frenaba el paso. Si lenguaje corporal era de orgullo por decir eso. Lo bueno es que casi se deja la cara (lastima que no pasara) contra una furgoneta parada A stranger told me this morning, "ouuuhhh you make me crazy" while he stopped his car at the intersection. It didn't seem like her was threatening to get out his…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I

I’ve always been more wary of men when it comes to going out in the streets since I first started reading stories of sexual assault and harassment online. But when it comes down to it, there’s really no way to tell when / how a man will do something that will make you uncomfortable. I experienced this MULTIPLE times today. It has rarely happened to me in the past, so…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Kiss Kiss…

A man in a blue SUV pulls to the side of college as I walk on the sidewalk to work. He rolls down the passenger window, whistles loudly, takes photos of me, and loudly makes kissing noises. I roll my eyes and continue my supposedly calming lunch break walk, but why??? Seriously?

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was 14 and he almost brushed my breast while shaking another persons hand. He and his friends did sexual acts behind my back. He and his friends spread bad rumors about me. From 15-17: He would follow me around, I guess he found me attractive. Continue to spread rumors that I liked him when I didn’t. His friends were involved as well. When I was 18: I joined a…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I am…

I am a musician and after a performance, I was walking home through a posh area of town and saw three young men (possibly high school age) walking towards me. As they approached, I thought perhaps I should cross the street, but then thought why should I change my route because of them? As they passed in silence, I was suddenly kicked in the ass (they also kicked my instrument,…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Mother

Mother's day. I was walking to my local grocery store with my grandpa to buy ingredients for a cake I was baking for my mother. Two men stood next to the door of the store and started making sexual gestures to me and calling out to me. "Yo beautiful! Looking good! I don't know whatcha doing walking with your grandfather but DAMN you got a fat ass!" I was so…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was walking on a street with a daikon (a kind of vegetable like a big carrot) I just bought in a shop because my bag didn't have a place for it. And then a random man on the street said to me "It's that too big" and then two men start laughing loudly. I wasn't aware what they are saying at first but feel really gross afterwards. Anyways, maybe…

HOLLA ON THE GO: So I

So I'm not even sure that this is abuse or harassment as such but it made me feel uncomfortable and annoyed.......I got out of my car to go into a shop this morning at approximately 7.15am. As I got out of my car, I could see that there was a scruffy, middle-aged man walking up the road, some distance away. I only glanced at him and glanced away but he…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Gross Compliments

First thing, the person in this scenario probably isn’t entirely mentally stable. But I was walking and told that I have the “high pro glo” and asked “is that legal to say?” After Googling (which I kinda wished I hadn’t), I found out this refers to the “aura” women have after orgasming. Yuck

HOLLA ON THE GO: Berawal dari…

Berawal dari ngobrol-ngobrol biasa saat perkenalan di kantor baru. Mereka tahu aku tinggal sendirian di kos, meskipun masih ada keluarga di kota yang sama. Kolega laki-laki dengan bercanda komentar gini: "Kok nggak tinggal sama ortu? Hayooo, mau 'liar', ya???" Cuma nyengir, padahal dongkol. Emangnya kucing? Emangnya semua perempuan yang memilih tinggal sendiri akan selalu bawa laki-laki masuk ke kamarnya? Terhina dengernya. Nggak lucu.

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was walking by my house with my son sleeping in his stroller when a car driving by yelled “Wanna fuck”. Not only did I feel disrespected by their words I couldn’t believe they said that to me while I was with my baby. I felt guilty walking alone by my house because I knew I could've driven to a safer area. I couldn’t stop looking over my shoulder to…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Ok, so…

Ok, so it's difficult in my mind to remember this because in the moment and after I really had afraid for myself. It was this winter, I'm a student so during the week I'm in my apartment in the city and in the weekend I'm in my parents house in the country. It was about 20 pm the sunday night, my dad and I was coming again in the city…
