Hollaback is A NON-PROFIT AND MOVEMENT TO END STREET HARASSMENT POWERED BY LOCAL ACTIVISTS IN 92 CITIES AND 32 COUNTRIES

On the Pulse w/Rob

  • Special interview with Chelle B. Mille of Hollaback Korea, discussing Hollaback, a movement to end street harassment, like catcalling or other types of harassment. Hollaback deals with the media very often, but the Korean media has misquoted them. She elaborates on the ramifications of this, and what recourse they have been able to pursue.
