Cross posted from Holla Back New York City:
Harassment and assault are on a spectrum of violence against women. Like other forms of violence against women, victims tend to stay quiet. Of our readers, 20% of you reported in our recent survey that you didn’t hollaback because you “secretly wonder if it’s your fault.”
To end of the cycle of violence, we need to break the silence. Hollaback’s newest project uses brains over brawn to fight street harassment. By giving you the ability to report and map street harassment with the touch of an iPhone button, we will let the world know that street harassment is not OK, one hollaback at a time.
