They added, “Originally it was five girls who were all part of the campaign, however we did not count the people who walked alongside us as the only participants of the walk. Everyone who saw us walk by, everyone who read a message on the boards we carried, everyone who heard about the walk from a friend, everyone who saw our post on social media and everyone who had a discussion about rape because of the walk were all participants.”

The organisers said that they will continue to raise awareness for rape. “We want to create greater awareness about rape and its impact on society. We hope that we gain support and traction as we continue to walk. We also intend on crafting more creative, attention-gripping and effective ways to [create] awareness and cause change,” the organisers said.
