The Campaign stated its intention to develop conferences, gatherings, and artistic performances in their social networks profiles. "We want to make visible the transversal political consensus and historical construction that made the massive social support for a federal, intergenerational, and multidisciplinary campaign possible," wrote.

"We rebel against policies that seek to control our bodies, govern our biographies and biologize the exercise of our identities," they tweeted. "We march, we gather, we recover the history of feminism, and we embrace each other in the persistence of the struggle. We proudly raise our green scarves that symbolize life as a horizon of autonomy, fulfillment, and dignity."
