We see it happen, but uncomfortably look away. We feel the urge to speak up, but stay cautiously silent. We all want to do something about it, but don’t know what. Or worse, we end up thinking it’s "not a big deal."

Street harassment is always a big deal. And now, we have what it takes to stand up to it. It’s always worth it.

82% of UK women and 20% of UK men have experienced sexual harassment in public spaces
That’s just the beginning of what our research on sexual harassment in public spaces in the U.K., Canada, Mexico, France, Italy, India, and the U.S. found.


78% of women have experienced sexual harassment in public spaces.
Street harassment is an experience that devalues women and men of all sexual orientations, cultures and beliefs causing them to doubt their own experiences.

When we watch harassment happen without intervening, it deepens the trauma for the person being harassed and shows the person doing the harassing that their behaviour is OK. We want to disrupt this dynamic one intervention at a time.

Street harassment is not always clear to identify. Its often very subtle and insidious. But whenever it’s unwanted verbal, non-verbal, physical conduct of a sexual nature, it’s harassment.
Other types of street harassment include: “accidentally” brushing, demanding ”give me a smile”, backhanded compliments, groping, invading a person’s space, pressing or rubbing against the person’s body, sexual sneak attacks (i.e. grabbing breasts or buttocks when not looking), sexist jokes, sexual innuendos, and sexist and insulting graffiti.

Only 25% say someone helped


Never think it’s your fault or that you’re alone when you're being harassed. Trust your instincts, reclaim your space, and remember you’re worth it with these insights and proven actions.

Hollaback! is a global, people-powered movement to end harassment. We work together to ensure equal access to public spaces.
