The event had a good media outreach which helped to raise awareness on the issue of violence against women. Several celebrities were involved at the event and made videos to draw attention to this important issue. 
Young pupils (from 6 to 15 years old) engaged in the campaign and became part of the worldwide movement by joining the Video & Dance competition.

Strong partners supported the event, like the American embassy in Prague and the President of the Czech Police and the Mayor of Prague.
