HOLLA ON THE GO:

I chose to take the short [way] through the alley cause another person took the turn into the alley. I passed this person in the alley on my way home and he said, "What’s going on babe?".

HOLLA ON THE GO:

Hi, my name is Judy and I want all women to be very very careful of all professional [doctors] out there in today’s society. Approximately 15 yrs ago I was seeing a private psychologist in a small town of which I will not name; I am so ashamed. Anyway, I used to see this particular doctor once a week if not twice and he always wanted me there twice. I started noticing…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

While on a job interview 21 years ago with the chairman of my company, I believe I was drugged and assaulted in his hotel room in NY. My memory of this incident just came back to me in December of 2017, triggered by all the #MeToo accusations that were all over the news. I can remember meeting him at the hotel, and can vaguely remember being in a hotel room,…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

Today is Monday, September 17 and I slept well, however, I am still very very angry at my whole situation. Last night, tons of stupid men came by our window all night. [Today, and for several days, I do plan to simply HIDE from them that’s what they have refused me too I can’t even take out the trash without fear of what these morans will do to a beautiful kind and sweet woman.…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

I was walking home from work, and I saw a man walking towards me a few blocks ahead. I had an uneasy feeling, so I crossed the street. When the man “met” me, he shouted to me across the street “ma’am?” And so I said “yeah?” And he said, “I got a question for you.” Sometimes people ask me for directions, and while I didn’t think that was going to…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

Although my local Sears shut down on September 2nd, 2018, I have a duty to report the sexual advances of an elderly Catholic priest. I was working at my jewelry counter when he snatched my arm and pulled me close, telling me how young and beautiful I was as he rubbed my arm. Stay safe, ladies.

HOLLA ON THE GO:

I was getting my driver's license test when the officer that was giving me the test forced me to watch explicit videos and threatened to not to give me my driver's license.

HOLLA ON THE GO:

I was walking up a side street and they said "can I buy your dog, baby?" from this big black SUV. I ignored the first time. Said no the second time. They did a slow u-turn, like an afterthought, and followed me onto the main street. They repeated the question and pulled up slowly next to me. Guy leaned out of the window mimicking a gun with his hands and…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

In 2012 I filed a police report against an old teacher of mine. The police did nothing. In 2015 I spoke to an investigative journalist and allowed my name to be used in a magazine story. You can read about my teacher if you choose. He wasn't a violent predator but he did immense and lasting damage to hundreds of women nonetheless. There are many ways to violate another person,…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

I am a 15-year-old girl living in New York City. Ever since age 12 (perhaps earlier), I have been subjected to verbal and even some physical harassment from men of all ages on the streets of my home city. I had become accustomed to this usual treatment for perhaps 3 years or more now. Daily threats are made, often framed as "jokes" that the harassers make to their friends, as…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

I had gone for dinner with my friends in the center of Barcelona. I live fairly far away so I had to take the train back home. I sat down by the window. I can't remember which stop this man got on but he sat right in front of me. He was wearing reflective sunglasses, despite the fact it was around 10-11pm. He had his backpack on his lap so…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

Today, I turned 13. And to celebrate I invited my friends over. I had invited my fifteen-year-old friend to my house but because I had moved recently she did not know the way back home. So of course I offered to take her home. I took my 10 year old friend with me. I didn’t want her to come but she insisted and in a way I’m glad she did.…

HOLLA ON THE GO:

In March 2017 I began working in Nebraska, for Scotts Bluff County, as a Communications Specialist. It was a job I was very excited about and hoped to make a career. Day one I began getting bullied and harassed. The male dispatcher charged with training me informed me he was notorious for making people cry, and if he didn’t he wasn’t doing his job. I was warned several times by…
