Review for Hollaback!, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
