NEW YORK, New York – Guys on the prowl and looking to howl are nothing new to the Big Apple, especially for the women of New York City.

Hollaback says street harassment can be many things: sexist, racist, homophobic, and transphobic. It also can be based on the size of the woman, or whether she’s rich or poor.
Hollaback says it’s in 79 cities in 26 countries, trying to bring an end to street intimidation.
