She explained the walk’s purpose was to provide a space for spiritual and physical education.The activity, which is not limited to students, is open to women of all ages, and bringing children is encouraged.

In each building the participants viewed quotes and videos about the divine nature of womanhood, in addition to hearing the testimony  of one of the women attending.
