This organization addresses street harassment. Perpetrators of such harassment seek to disempower their victims. Holla Back provides a safe and supportive forum where the victims can really make a difference, while before Holla Back, they often felt that there was nothing they could do. Holla Back gives hope in a situation where there is no immediate course of action that will correct the injustice: if a victim ignores the harassment she feels powerless, if she confronts the harassment, she risks her safety. Holla Back is an essential part of the contemporary women's rights movement and is gaining momentum every day.

Hollaback addresses gender-based violence in public spaces, in a safe, easy and empowering way. We believe that ending sexual harassment and violence in public spaces will be the defining feminist issue for the current generation of activists, much like addressing workplace sexual harassment was decades ago.

The Great!

creating a new media platform to track when and where harassment happens, Hollaback will soon be an important catalyst that challenges social norms, engages communities, pushes for tougher laws, and eventually ends sexual harassment.

Emily and the Hollaback! founding members are a super inspired and inspiring bunch of smart and fun activists on a mission to change the world, one Hollaback! at a time. And they really do get results! So it was easy to want to get involved and help take this awesome organization to the next level of success. It was collaborative, goal-oriented, and easy to get things agreed and done. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

When we founded HollabackNYC five years ago, we thought we'd be able to bring raise some consciousness in our city about street harassment. We had no idea the idea would take off the way it did, and now we're pushing forward to take the project to the next level by really giving women and LGBTQ folks powerful tools to respond to harassment, and to give Hollaback! the ability to build effective public policy and advocacy materials. The reorganization of Hollaback brings co-founder Emily May into the position of Executive Director, bringing a smart, savvy, and experienced leader in to focus on street harassment full time. The organization under her leadership has already developed a new website and iPhone app, a corps of volunteers, and an international network of chapters.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work as a boardmember and co-founder, witnessing the tremendous response from users and activists around the world, as well as from the media who highlight our work and thus raise awareness on street harassment.

Hollaback is a unique and effective movement that is going to end street harassment with the right trust, support, and resources. I'm extremely proud to be a part of such a multi-faceted, comprehensive, and in-your-face approach to asserting women's rights to be on the street. Hollaback is badass- and I wouldn't change a thing.

How people have begun to think about street harassment in my own life, and how the reaction to my work with Hollaback has always been gratitude and respect for the project.

Hollaback is great! I am so glad to be a part of a movement that helps women feel empowered to fight back against street harassment. With $10,000 we could change the way women are treated on the street.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By reading the comments on the HollabackNYC blog, I learned there is a community of people who have had similar experiences as myself. We should all feel empowered to do something against street harassment. We shouldn't be quiet anymore.

I would make sure Hollaback was fully funded and that we could complete the iPhone application by mid July 2010.

Street harassment can be distressing and confusing. When I saw all of the stories on Hollaback, I was inspired to change the way that I responded to harassment. When we start telling our stories, we find that there is a lot to tell and a lot to connect with other people about. Hollaback helped me to see how pervasive and real this problem is.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

gaining the knowledge that I am not alone and I don't need to suffer silently. I think that Hollaback has great potential to shift societal norms regarding what we are expected to accept when we walk down a public street.

Hollaback has helped me in so many ways and has moved me to give back and help others in turn. Having a support network and the satisfaction of being able to turn to the website and submit a story and make public the details of sometimes traumatic and horrifying events is invaluable to women today. It is a shame the internet wasn't around in 1505 because women of that period would have found Hollaback just as essential.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My self-esteem and confidence. I have a powerful weapon in my pocket today when I walk down the street: my cellphone. Just knowing that I have the power to help end street harassment by participating in the movement helps me hold my head higher.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The smart, sexy, sassy women I get to work with every day.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Ambitious and brilliant.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open chapters in every country in the world and reach millions and millions of women who are groped, grabbed, spat upon, stalked, beaten, and humiliated in public every day.

Hollaback! is an absolutely essential key in the burgeoning movement to end street harassment. Everyone has the right to feel safe and sexy in public, and the daily reality for most women means experiencing harassment, intimidation, and even fear from men on the street. Hollaback! is revolutionizing the way men and women think about street harassment, and empowering individuals to speak out and hollaback! Street harassment is at one end of a spectrum of violence against women, and it should not be tolerated by anyone. Getting involved with Hollaback! is an amazing way to join that fight.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own experience with street harassment. Hollaback! has inspired me to stop walking on or internalizing it when I'm harassed on the street. I can respond by snapping a picture, telling my story, and feeling empowered!

Hollaback! is absolutely amazing. Using technology to combat street harassment is an elegantly simple way to address the most tangible form of discrimination that women in cities face on a daily basis. It is SO empowering to be able to respond to street harassment - something that makes you feel powerless - with a story that gives you a feeling of agency and community. This organization is full of fun, sassy women who commit countless volunteer hours to fostering community on the blog, fund-raising, and finding even more innovative ways to use technology.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life! The Hollaback! blog has literally changed the way I think about and experience street harassment every day. Knowing that this community exists makes it easier to deal with harassment and to confront my harasser when appropriate.
