Hollaback! is an app that was created as a way to expose street harassment and abolish it. Thanks to this network, victims and witnesses can report this type of incidents. This app shows you and notifies you about the different dangerous situations that have taken place near you.

Hollaback! includes two main features. The first one informs you about the incidents that have taken place in your community. This section gives you access to a map where you'll see different green and pink dots. The green dots represent witness reports and the pink ones represent reports from the victims themselves. When you access each of the reports you'll see a detailed description of the incident. This feature was designed to help you avoid danger for yourself and others.

On the other hand, another really great feature that this app includes is that all the incident reports are anonymous. You can report any situation that you've experienced or you've witnessed without having to enter your personal information. All you have to do is tap on the 'Take Action' button and choose the type of incident you'd like to report; verbal abuse, sex-related gestures, groping, stalking, flashing, assault, homophobia, transphobia, racism or other. Once you've done that, you can choose whether you want to enter your first name or remain anonymous. Regardless of your decision, you can pinpoint the exact location so others can take the necessary precautions around that area.

Download Hollaback! and help fight against street harassment. Share this type of incident reports with your community and become part of this growing network.
