Hollaback London was set up in 2010 by two friends, Julia Gray and Bryony Beynon. Now, it’s a collective of more than 30 people, and part of a global network dedicated to ending street harassment.
We use the term ‘street harassment’ to describe any unwanted sexual/sexualising behaviour that makes you feel uncomfortable as a woman or LGBTQ person moving through public space. This might include: Staring, leering, commenting, shouting, following, touching, grabbing, public masturbating, groping, flashing, assault.
This. happens. every. day.
Society perpetuates the idea that our bodies are public property, and that harassment, abuse, assault and daily fear is just the price we pay for leaving the house. We say: not anymore. We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe in public.
So what are we doing about it?
We are here to end street harassment. Join us and donate today:
