- — Rebecca Faria (@RebelBeckerton)Wed, Nov 05 2014 13:17:19Welp, just yelled WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU to a dude hissing "hey girlie" to a woman at the bridge terminal. It's a #hollaback kind of day.

- — Bobbi Zahra (@Sleehah)Tue, Oct 07 2014 12:58:18A friend walks home at might, ignores men catcalling. They throw a beer bottle, call her 'slut,' 'whore.' Proud parents? #EverydaySexism
- — Bobbi Zahra (@Sleehah)Tue, Oct 07 2014 21:55:31@HollabackHRM She feels that she must somehow deserve it, actually, that they somehow knew something about her past. Am SO angry for her!

- — Caitlin McGuire (@eastcoastkto)Fri, Oct 03 2014 23:06:39I'm too tired to deal with even potential street harrassment tonight, which is a ridiculous reality.
- — Caitlin McGuire (@eastcoastkto)Fri, Oct 03 2014 23:05:41I've had a long day. I'd rather not get called a whore on my walk home or have someone else throw something at me from their car.
- — Caitlin McGuire (@eastcoastkto)Fri, Oct 03 2014 23:04:18Was going to walk down Bell Rd by myself, but then there were guys yelling out their car at people on Spring Garden & I decided to bus.
- — Laura Tordoff (@ltordoff92)Tue, Sep 30 2014 16:29:37A man just cat-called me with the angriest face I've ever seen. The traffic's stopped so he's awkwardly sat in front of me in his car 👏
