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.

|Motherfucker, I am at a house concert to see an aging British rock star and his rocker girlfriend. We are sitting in a stranger's living room, people who have generously opened their homes to us so we can rock. Do not sit that close to me and laugh when you say that you can back off if you're being "too personal". If you have to joke about it, you are. |
Mostly, I'd just love for you to stop staring into my blouse when you think I'm not watching. I see everything you're doing, and you're fucking gross, you prick. I am young enough to be your daughter. Go home alone because women like myself are sick of your nasty shit.
