We are a collective of individuals who think that sexual and gender-based street harassment in all of its forms (sexist, racist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, sizeist, faith/religion based and/or classist whether it be physical or verbal) IS NOT OK. So we have formed Hollaback! Derby.
Street harassment is based on a power dynamic that is aimed to keep traditionally subordinated groups in their place (for example women and LGBT+ individuals) it functions as a means to silence people and ‘keep them in their place’.
Hollaback! Derby aims to address this by giving people a platform to express what they have experienced and give others the opportunity to support them by saying ‘I’ve got your back!’.
We are contactable via email [email protected]
