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.

|What did this dude think he was doing when he tried to run me off the road?! did he hate my pro-lady bumper sticker or some shit? Seriously, we were on Storrow Drive and he tried to almost run me off the road a couple of times. Didn't mess with anyone else, and then he saw me take a picture! Gotcha, sucka! then he tried to slow down so I'd pass him, but no such luck, dude. You messed with a holla lady. Next time, check yourself before you wreck yourself (or try to wreck anyone else for that matter!)|
