HOLLA ON THE GO: Never went back to the Library

There’s a man named Mike. He was my brothers friend. He was 19 I was 15. Super creepy vibe from him. One day at the Middle country public library, I was reading a book. He was there and found me while I was down in the basement area reading a book. Well no one was … Continued

Responded to my harasser and he apologized

I was on my way to a gig with my violin on my back, wearing a long formal dress that covered most of my body. A man stopped directly in front of me on the street (after angling himself into my path coming towards me) while I was obviously in a hurry, blocking my path. … Continued

Usually when I or my female friends are harassed (which happens at least once a day in hot weather) I tell our harassers to “keep their [expletive that varies] eyes ahead.” Well, today on my walk home from the train, a man (speeding waaaaaay too fast before and after the incident) pulled up to me … Continued

Yelled at by the subway

This was a while ago. Me and my mom were walking to the subway when a guy came down the street yelling at us. “Get out of my way, bitch!” Again and again. We walked quickly away and into a 7-11 nearby, but he followed us. I don’t know what I said, but it was … Continued
