Moreover, the rest of the evening was mainly dedicated for connecting with each other and also serves as an eye-opener towards each woman’s experience in dealing with this struggle in their life.
All the women who took part in this video campaign have been very vocal about mental health and women empowerment and have freely shared their stories and experiences to draw attention to the importance of taking care of oneself.
