The organization’s main purpose is to create a safe place for the women of Carthage to discuss and address their concerns with issues regarding violence’s against women. This entails educating women on how to properly use self-defense weapons, on how to handle the topic of sexual harassment/assault, and the services available for help if needed. Finally, the organization creates a line of contact for women who feel unsafe whether that is waiting for a shuttle alone or walking back from class at night.
