Street harassment makes our streets unsafe and unequal. This app will support victims and drive change.

Why we care:
Over 70% of women are verbally harassed, threatened, groped, or witness to public exposure at some point during their lives.

How we’re solving this:
By creating a one-touch street harassment reporting and mapping app that allows individuals to share their personalized maps and stories with their social network, building empathy and support.

Street harassment, or sexual harassment in public space, is one of the final new frontiers for equal rights globally. And, with each separate identity — being young, being queer, or being a person of color — there is an exponentially greater likelihood of experiencing street harassment.

With this innovative app, we’ll collect 1,000 new stories over one year. These stories will in turn generate over 10,000 pledges of support online. In addition, Hollaback! will meet with 80 legislators annually and work alongside them to create community-driven initiatives, including safety audits, early education materials, and bystander workshops, to ensure safer spaces for women and LGBT individuals.

Hollaback!, along with tech partners Sassafras Collective and Brooklyn United, will collaborate to create an app that allows for one-touch reporting and personalized mapping of harassment. After the prototype phase, Brooklyn United will coordinate focus groups to test the app for usability and, responding to user feedback, will adapt the app to scale throughout the Hollaback! network – currently in 79 cities and 26 countries worldwide.

We secured Brooklyn United to carry out design at a cost of $5,000. Your support will also compliment a $20,000 grant we received from Voqal. Their grant will go specifically towards tech development and staff time.

We’re mindful that we are working in the English language, with plans to expand the app worldwide.  We’ll face the challenge of working heavily with translators and our volunteers to ensure that everyone has access to the app in the future and can share their story.

With the creation of a one-touch reporting app, women will have a platform to share their stories and know that they are not alone. What’s more, with personalized mapping, they can share their experiences with friends and family, building empathy in the community. Help us help users to be heard and find support.
