The initiative advocates the liberty of free expression and stresses the importance of being safe enough to talk about what women in society are facing. They should have the liberty and safety to express themselves and approach the concerned authorities for necessary action.

Women leaders have come forward to act as change agents to support other women in various topics such as emotional/physical harassment, bullying, body shaming, entrepreneurship, mental wellness, financial independence etc.
