What is Hollaback?
The real motive of harassment is intimidation. To make its target scared or uncomfortable, and to make the harasser feel powerful. But what if there was a simple way to take that power away by exposing it? You can now use your smartphone or a computer to do just that by documenting, mapping, and sharing incidents of harassment.

Our mission is to build safe, inclusive public spaces by transforming the culture that perpetuates discrimination and violence.
We carry out this mission by building the power of people to create measurable and long-lasting impacts in the movement for gender justice.
We envision a world where all people have the freedom to move through public space, participate in civic life, and reach their full potential.
In this world, women and LGBTQ+ individuals will never face violence and discrimination as they walk down the street, go to school, sit in the park, attend a public protest, or participate online or in media.
We all have the right to be who we are, whatever that means that day, that hour, that minute.
