“big, long winter coat and boots” – Amanda’s story

Walking to a meeting at City Hall in a big, long winter coat and boots. Young guy walking in the opposite directions looks at me and says “Baby I would TEAR THAT ASS UP!”
I didn’t look at him and just kept on walking :-/

Groping

“walked behind me and groped my butt” – Anna’s story

I had just left my apartment and I was on my way to the metro to go out to the county. I was meeting my family for church on my way there at the light/crossing between MLK blvd and Howard street right next to the Cultural center light rail stop I was waiting to cross the street when a man in a gray hoodie walked behind me and groped my butt. I turned around quick he had crossed the street I wanted to go after him and mace him but the only thing I did was quickly walk away in the other direction and cry. I felt so embarrassed and stupid.

I had my phone in my hand I should have taken a picture of the disgusting creep.

“give him the finger” – Sarah’s story

Guy at stoplight hollered at me as I crossed the street in front of him. Long cross walk. By the end of my walk I decided to give him the finger. He told me to I should stick it up my ass and maybe I’d feel better.

“old enough to be your father or grandfather” – Alicia’s story

I haven’t experienced the Holla, lately. However, as a teenager it was very frightening to dump the trash in the backyard or walking down the street and hear someone hollering obscenities at you about your backside and turn around its a grown adult male and he’s old enough to be your father or grandfather. I was afraid to tell my mother. For one reason she was not at home or she may not have believed me or I was afraid of what might happened to him. Even in school getting hollered at from your male peers or touched on your backside while going up the hall steps.

“he leered at me when I walked by” – Jen’s story

Walking on the street, and a guy on a bike comes up from behind, swerves in front of me, says, “nice buns” then rides off. A block or two later he’d chained up his bike directly outside the coffee shop where I was walking to (meeting a coworker), and he leered at me when I walked by. By the time I came out, he was gone.

“I’m only 13” – New story

So I was just in the car with my mother on my way to the city. I was sitting on the backseat to the left and I looked over and saw two men sitting in a sedan. the man sitting closest to the window smiled at me and then made a V with his fingers and did that licking thing. I was really scared and even though I was in the car, a totally separate car, I’d never experienced stuff like that before and it was really awkward and uncomfortable..

“I stopped to tell him how rude he was being” – Dani’s story

I was walking down the street to grab my zip car, and as I passed some guy in a parking lot, he did a double take and shouted at me ‘hey beautiful.’ I stopped to tell him how rude he was being, and he actually apologized.
