Hollaback Canada Launch!

We're pleased to announce that Hollaback Canada is now up and running. The guidelines for submitting, and a description of what we are are given in this post below, but you can always find them in the title and sidebar.

For now comments are enabled, but that is a decision we will be reviewing.

HollabackCanada is a place for Canadian women to post photos of and shame their harassers. Although we are not affiliated with Holla Back New York City, this website is based directly on their concept. Please email submissions for HollabackCanada to HollabackCanada@gmail.com.

If you are a Canadian woman who is harassed, catcalled, commented on, kissy-noised at, or otherwise bothered by men on the street, whip out your camera and snap a pic of the offending jackass. Then email the pic, along with the location of the incident (as specific or vague as you like), your name (if you want) and your comments, and we will post it for the world to see.

Racist, homophobic, ableist, classist, or otherwise bigoted comments will NOT be posted. We reserve the right to either edit the offending material before posting, or simply not post, your entry.

All photos and text remain property of their creator, however by sending a photo or text email to hollabackCanada@gmail.com, you give us permission to use it on the HollaBackCanada site.
