Holla Back DC is fighting street harassment in America’s capital by empowering Washingtonians to speak out against gender based public sexual harassment.
We define gender based sexual harassment as any sexual harassment that occurs in a public space when one or more individuals (man or woman) accost another individual, based on their gender, as they go about their daily life. This can include vulgar remarks, heckling, insults, innuendo, stalking, leering, fondling, indecent exposure and other forms of public humiliation. Gender based public sexual harassment occurs on a continuum starting with words, stalking, and unwanted touching which can lead to more violent crimes like rape, assault, and murder.
Whether you’re commuting, lunching, partying, dancing, walking, chilling, drinking, or sunning, you have the right to feel safe, confident, and sexy, without being the object of someone’s fantasy. So stop walkin’ on and Holla Back: send your stories and pics of street harassers to dchollaback at gmail dot com.
