Who We Are

AISHA ZAKIRA: Founder & Ex-Director

Aisha is a consultant for a human rights commission, a newspaper columnist on Indian affairs and Founder and Director of Hollaback!MUMBAI. She likes polka dots, punctuation and the mass transit. Like many other Mumbaikars, she has so much love for this crazy, wonderful city, and hopes that the Hollaback! initiative will empower women and re-educate men, on a grassroots and policy level, so that all people feel safe, respected and comfortable on the streets of Mumbai.


Tired of being harassed under the biblical guise of Eve, Arpita finally discovered Hollaback! as her godmother of empowerment and jumped on the  fighter chariot. Originally from Delhi, she fell head-over-heals in love with Mumbai at the age of 11, which still remains her first love. She’s a writer, environmentalist, researcher and joined Hollaback! Mumbai chapter with the hope of  acclaiming her and every woman’s rights of living like a “human”, above everything else.
