Campaign to raise $25K ends in 11 days, make your end-of-year gift today!
The Hollaback movement is growing fast. In Philly, Los Angeles,
San Jose, Rochester, France, Buenos Aires, Alberta, and Berlin young women,
impacted by the daily reality of harassment in their communities, are
ready and waiting to start Hollaback sites. But they need your support.
Your gift will help provide them the training, community, and
technology they need to get started. Donate today at my.ihollaback.org
Meet Anna, the leader of HollabackFRANCE and Inti Maria, the leader of HollabackBUENOSAIRES. Hear them talk about why they want to start Hollaback sites:
Who are we?
Hollaback! is a crowd-sourced movement to end street harassment. We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe and confident when they walk down the street.

We are proud
to announce the launch of the Hollaback! iPhone app! The iPhone App gives us a
response to street harassment that will be mapped and heard, transforming the
isolating experience of street harassment into an opportunity to tell the world that street harassment is not OK. To
download it, click here.
When you sign into the
iPhone app, you will be given choice to Hollaback! with or without a picture,
describing the type of harassment: verbal, flashing, groping, assault, or
other. A GPS mapping feature automatically tracks where the harassment is
taking place, and maps it on iHollaback.org. Then, you'll gets an email
entitled “You Hollaback’ed!” where you are encouraged to tell the rest of your story
when you are safely back at your computer. The iPhone app will pilot in the U.S.,
with plans to expand internationally. A Droid app is scheduled to launch
later this week.
This app was funded,
designed, and built by some incredible people. We want to give a special
thank you to our 356 Kickstarter donors, our friends at RightRides and Orange Mico, and our volunteers Jill
Dimond and Sophia Shoemaker. We couldn't have done this without you.
