The real Hollaback women (no, not girls)

The web has not only given the average person new outlets for self-expression but also has provided people with an opportunity to do more than kvetch over the daily gripes and slights life dishes out in bitch sessions with friends. A fantastic example of this is http://www.hollabacknyc.blogspot.com/, where women can document the guys who harass or verbally abuse them.

I love http://bitterwaitress.com/, too, for the same reason. Real people venting about real grievances. I'm sure there are many sites in cyberspace for road rage, date rapes, and more. While I'd caution that we should make ourselves aware of slander and libel laws, I also believe this is what the web is all about.
