The open workout demonstrated a self-defense system created for ladies dubbed the “She Fights Technique”, teaching women on how best to respond to harassment whether it is sexual in nature or domestic violence and other types of violence. SheFights also included education about laws on self-defense in Malaysia, empowering women with knowledge on post-harassment measures for victims including how to locate counselling and shelter for abused women. The main objective was to provide education and awareness on crime against women and teach them how to avoid crime with the right knowledge and attitude.
