HOLLA ON THE GO: Bullying is…

I work in a male dominant atmosphere. Part of the problem revolves around cultural beliefs of how it is ok to treat woman. This also allows other men and women who do not want to stop the workplace violence to also become part of it. I don’t want to share much but just make others aware that bullying is happening to women and other women are joining it in fear…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I am…

I am a 17-year-old female who decided to go to the corner store to get some snacks in the evening. Abruptly this middle-aged male slowed down in his car and asked me if I smoked. I ignored him and continued to walk. I noticed from the corner of my eye that he was following me. He asked me again if I smoked, I said no and continued walking. Then he…

This must have been on Thursday, July 20, 2019. There are these racist straight white couples incessantly harassing me. This one extremely racist woman would not leave/ They were in a car at the bus stop. They were glaring at me and muttering things under their breath for like 25 minutes threatening me.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Long shot

I sat down at my favorite Karaoke bar and was touched by this guy Leonard. Leonard has just watched the movie “Long Shot” with Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. Leonard has smoked a lot of weed and was drinking like a fish. Leonard felt it was fate that I sat next to him. He thought the movie was real life. Leonard started touching me even when I asked him to…

HOLLA ON THE GO: How to…

How to Speak to Women in the Workplace After experiencing condescending, misogynist, and, sexist behavior in several different office settings throughout my life, I had to wonder if there were articles I could share about how to speak to women in the workplace. Somewhere on the Web, it had to be simply laid out right? Well … When I conducted a very brief search, the top articles that showed up,…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was late for a job interview and unlike my usual self, accepted a ride from a person I didn't know. The ride was uneventful but he did ask for a hug as I got out the vehicle and kissed me on my cheek. He also asked for my phone number. After we started chatting he started to push sexually suggestive messages although I told him I have a boyfriend.…

A creepy old man in his 60s offered me some Japanese biscuits, and accused me when I politely rejected of not being 'feminine' or 'lady-like' because I sat with my legs crossed. He stalked me the next day.

HOLLA ON THE GO: Strip mall…

Walking alone trying to go to the local pharmacy to pick up a prescription I am all of a sudden followed by a person who has left the dollar store and will not leave me alone for some sort of compensation for his existence and ability to compliment me. I started walking in the road part of the parking lot to try avoiding this persistent pest. Eventually when reaching the…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Creepers on…

I spent the day walking on state street. Several people cat calling, following, provoking. I felt so uncomfortable in my skin that I hid away in a store to avoid these people. It appears that some homeless manipulate people into stopping and talking while they get ready to assault or rob you. State street is not a safe location at night. It is frightening for a single female to walk…

HOLLA ON THE GO: As a…

As a young female cyclist, I often get two forms of harassment: 1) verbal abuse and intimidation from the general public who hate cyclists (men and women), and 2) sexual harassment or intimidation from men. In the last six months, the latter has included being "air kissed" at by a driver I thought was slowing down to let me pass, crept up upon by a driver in a quiet residential…

HOLLA ON THE GO: Turned down…

I was shopping by myself at this gas station, when a strange man came up and demanded I smile at him. I said “no, I don’t smile on command.” He muttered curses, called me “reta**ed,” then said “how’d you like me to come kick your ass?” I replied “How’d you like me to call the police and have you arrested?” He was increasingly agitated as I was trying to pay…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was riding my usual bus to work, and it was early in the morning so it wasn’t crowded. I was sitting on the seat close to the aisle, with my bag on the seat beside me. At one of the bus stops, three men get in the bus. The bus had a few empty seats, but one of them asks to sit down. I grabbed my bags and put…

HOLLA ON THE GO: I was…

I was walking by the river with my boyfriend, around 9pm. In front of us, a group of men, drunk. We walk faster so we pass by them, and one shouts "very very hot". I was surprised that me holding the hand of my boyfriend wasn't enough to prevent this kind of harassment. He ignored it, me too, when we were a bit further I grasped him tighter and he…
