Stand Up, Speak Out

So far, 2013 has been a very good year for Hollaback! Boston in terms of speaking engagements and opportunities to connect offline – and we couldn’t be more grateful!

Up next, we’ll be joining Fenway Health and IMPACT Boston next Thursday, May 9 for a workshop to empower, engage and enlighten. Britni and I will be offering advice for bystander intervention and responding to harassment, and IMPACT will serve up some self-defense tips.

Would you like Hollaback! Boston to speak to your class, group, or at an upcoming event? We can offer an introduction to street harassment, a breakdown of why street harassment is problematic, and tips for responding and bystander intervention, geared to a variety of audiences. Get in touch!


We actively denounce the notion that street harassment is culturally accepted and that victims somehow "deserve" it. Through raising awareness and sharing experiences, we hope to put an end to catcalling, groping, stalking, public masturbation, assaults, racial slurs, and other forms of street harassment. Because we believe we have the power to create a world where we can feel hot, confident, and badass, while still feeling safe!
