JOIN US APRIL 7-13, 2013. MEET US ON THE STREET ANTI-STREET HARASSMENT WEEK!
Catcalls, sexist comments, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault impact all women and many men, especially in the LGBQT community. IT MUST END.
Join tens of thousands of people worldwide as we collectively go to the streets and use sidewalk chalk, posters, fliers, street theater, rallies, and marches to reclaim public spaces and demand an end to gender-based street harassment!

JUNE 13-15 : Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference. Hollaback!’s Baltimore, Philly, and Richmond are joining forces on a workshop on ways to encourage empowerment of the transgender community in the face of street harassment. We’re so excited! Send all your tips and suggestions to [email protected]
JULY 25th- 28th HOLLA REVOLUTION : We will be attending the first event and retreat addressing street harassment in the world.
We will be holding an informal get together to vent about street harassment and what it looks like in our daily lives. You are not alone in this and we have your back! We are hoping that this will be a great space to be able to talk/vent to others away from our website and mobile app. We will have food and can also talk about upcoming events and projects. We hope you can join us!
ONE BILLION RISING RVA RALLY: FEBRUARY 14 2013 at the Richmond Coliseum from 11-2pm
We will be organizing and participating in other OBR events as well. Be sure to stay tuned! We are RISING against Street Harassment and Gender Based Violence!
What is One Billion Rising?
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being.
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
