The members are fighting for gender issues through signature campaigns,online petitions,etc.The campaign has gained a lot of attention in the past one year.From curfews to restriction on wearing short clothes to other means of moral policing,the Delhi-wide campaign seeks to fight against gender discrimination and bring equal rules and regulations for both men and women in the university and PG’s.
