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.

|Yesterday I was walking through the mall on Commonwealth Ave. at about 5pm, it's beautiful and peaceful. I'm wearing my headphones, but through the music I hear this deep raspy voice anyway:|
"Ohhhhh, yeeaahhh. Yeah, baby, ohhhhh!!! ohhhh!!" MOANING at me. And grunting. And getting really into it.
I rolled my eyes, flipped out my phone, and snapped him before quickly crossing the street.
Don't raise your hands at me and say, "What?" like you have no idea why you pissed me off. The Commonwealth should be pervert free.
