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.
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.
