I think this I Holla Back ( initiative is pretty cool and whilst it does not solve everything it has the potential to create more safe spaces or advise women of which unsafe spaces to avoid. It also provides us with a sense of power (I know because I've used it) to identify offenders and share experiences and feelings, knowing that you are not alone and have support. Men can also contribute on behalf of wives, sisters, girlfriends, mothers etc. I think this idea could be transferred to an app, to a village community board, to social networks in many different ways - any other ideas on how to translate the I Holla Back concept to different types of communities?

Cool idea, is there a need for final disposal of the gowns once the wearer finishes their mission? If so how and what's the environmental impact?
