HOLLA ON THE GO: A male…

A male stranger who was an employee at a nearby grocery store was staring and following me on my way home. He was standing at the side of the store's parking lot staring. He was around 40 to 50 something years old, wearing a black cap, black apron, light blue short sleeve shirt, and black pants. I felt unsafe while I walked down the street as he kept staring and…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I

I’m a 15 year old girl and I was walking back home from the metro. When I first got out of the metro station and headed for the crossing lights at the road I saw two men in their twenties. I almost sensed they were going to bother me. After waiting for the lights to change, I crossed the road. Both of the men looked at each other and mumbled…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Bus Ride…

An older man boarded the bus after me. The bus was standing room only, but wasn’t full enough to be packed. Still, he walked back to the same pole I was holding and stood facing me and so close that his hips bumped mine any time the bus swayed. At the next stop, some people got off the bus and I moved back several steps. He again followed me back,…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was playing pool in a pub. When I bent down to take a shot I had my bottom touched. I turned round and saw who it was. I asked him not to do it again and I said that, if it happened again, the pool cue would go in his eye. It happened again but, as I turned round, each of the people behind me denied it was him.…

I'm a 15 year old girl, one Sunday afternoon I was meeting a few friends at the Downtown San Antonio Mall. I had to take public transportation since my mom was at work. I was walking down the sidewalk, about a block away from the mall when a community cleaner guy (community cleaners sweep up side walks and he was way older, about mid 40's) said "damn babe, can I…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Going to…

I was on my way to class on the UW Seattle campus. As I was walking up to the building where my class is taught, a stranger screamed at me, “Get the fuck out of my way bitch before I beat your nose off!” This was the second time I was harassed on my way to/from this class in the last few weeks.

HOLLA ON THE GO: A friend…

A friend and I were walking out of a pub when a middle-aged man leaned out of his car window and screamed ‘FUCKING WHORES!’ at us as he drove past. The most infuriating part, for myself, was being unable to fight back - he was already long gone by the time I could reply. We should have the right to exist in public without being treated this way!

HOLLA ON THE GO: At a…

At a certain point i had to walk home everyday for a couple of weeks. Not only have I been followed through the course of that time, I have been catcalled. I also had a picture taken of me by a random man with no permission to do so (no he was not a photographer. He randomly took his phone out and snapped a picture). I am 15.

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was walking to pick my sister up from school when a man in a car rode past and made a sexual comment about my body. I felt disgusted and small for not responding back and freezing up as I did when I was first introduced to it as a 9 year old girl. Here I am at 18 responding the same way. It’s embarrassing and annoying ,men should learn…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I just…

I just got home, went by subway, and had to wait for it for 10min, so I went back up and sat on a bench. Enters this old dude, sits right next to me even though two other benches are free, stares at me and makes a motion as if he's smoking (mind you, Im not even smoking), I say no, sorry. He laughs, extends his arm on the top…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Acosador Insistente

Saliendo de mi gimnasio vi que se acercaba un chico con gafas de sol que decía haber venido hace poco a España. Dijo que me habia visto varias veces ir al gimnasio y se sabía mi casa. Me insistio en que le diese su numero porque buscaba amigos, muchas veces, casi al punto de perseguirme. El me acabo dándome el suyo pero llegue a casa muy enfadada conmigo misma por…

Immediately my friend’s mom went “what the f*ck” and grabbed his arm and my friend and i started yelling and then some guys came over and…
