Street harassment is a serious and multi-faceted social problem that makes women and people of other marginalized groups unsafe in public spaces. HollaBackBoston does not define street harassment but believes harmful power dynamics in society lie at the core of our inequality. We believe that building a safe world demands diverse international fronts of resistance. Dedicated to the city of Boston, we continue to reclaim public space by empowering everyone to “HOLLA BACK” at street harassers.
You can holla back in the moment in a way that is fast and easy. Use your phonecams or digital cameras to DOCUMENT STREET HARASSERS. Add firstname.lastname@example.org directly to your cellphone. Email us the pics with your story. We accept submissions from anywhere!
All Holla Backs are independent collectives, in support of the same international mission; they are in no way affiliated with one another unless otherwise noted.

I understand that not many men have any idea WHERE they're looking when they're just staring off into space, wearing their three-piece suits, on their corporate lunch breaks, sipping their goddamn mocha frappuccinos, but MY CROTCH is not available for your viewing pleasure. which is definitely not at your eye level. which is why you "shifted" yourself, and moved to get a better view, you total jerk. i'm just trying to sit here and work. and my legs are holding up my computer. and i'm wearing jeans!! and i don't feel like crossing them because i don't want them to go numb. so what - i'm supposed to choose between NUMB LEGS and your PERVY LITTLE EYES? i hope you OD on caffeine.
