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 email@example.com 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 was sitting in Brighton Center today eating ice cream when these two dudes in a black SUV drove by and honked. It would have been less obnoxious if they'd just moved on, but they both leaned over to look at me and my friend and then as they slowly drove on, they turned at the next corner and looked back again and kept staring. I actually ran down the street to take their picture, but I was too late. So I took a picture of the day's flavors because they were NOT my friend and I...you know, in case that was confusing or something.|
Can't I eat in public in peace?
