Hollaback is an initiative to raise awareness about and combat street harassment. They filmed a young woman clad in a simple black t-shirt and jeans—not that it really matters what she was wearing, but the idiots among us love using that to justify verbally and physically abusing women—walking through the streets of New York and captured the staggering amount of street harassment she was subjected to. Over the course of ten hours, Hollaback recorded over one hundred instances of verbal street harassment. They note that the harassment spanned a number of neighborhoods and people of all backgrounds.
