Hollaback UK

// 21 October 2009

We’re still getting regular comments on the street harassment post I wrote last year, so I was delighted to hear that a Hollaback UK site has just been started by Laura C:

Inspired by HollaBack NYC, and a recent disturbing incident on the London Underground, HollaBackUK has been launched as a place for UK women to Holla Back at street harassers.

No matter where you are, who you are, or what you are wearing, you have the right to feel safe. Holla back at street harassers, let them know that we won’t stand for it!

You can email or text photos and stories to hollabackuk01[at]gmail.com.
