Today marks the launch of a network of global sites aimed at putting street harassment on the map, and to an end. Locally, HollaBack! SoCal is a safe space to document incidents in the 213, 310, 562, 818, 714, 626, and 909. "It is your right to be your badass self," say the site's organizers to women and members of the LGBTQ community. "We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, confident, and sexy when they walk down the street. When street harassment happens, don’t ignore it. Or forget it. Don’t just walk on … Hollaback!"
