Hollaback! is using mobile technology to fight street harassment and assault. According to the Hollaback! team:

“Street harassment is one of the most pervasive forms of violence against women, and on of the least legislated against. Comments from ‘You’d look good on me’ to groping, flashing or assault, are a daily, global reality for women and LGBTQ individuals… Hollaback! is creating a crowd-sourced initiative to end street harassment that breaks the silence…”

Hollaback!’s mobile app will log and track instances of street harassment, mapping locations and numbers for this usually invisible problem. Visit http://www.hollabacknyc.com to learn about Hollaback! in NYC, DC,  and other cities!
