Here's why Dakota Johnson wants women to call her


ANI Washington D.C. [USA]
American actor Dakota Johnson went all out by sharing her personal phone number, urging girls and women to call her and share their stories about sexual assault.
While addressing the crowd at the Global Citizen Festival, the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actor said she "wants to help women and girls around the world to tell their story," reported E! News.
She took her phone out and added, "This is my phone number. I want you to call me and tell me your story in a voicemail. Or I want you to send me a message at********* and tell me what you've gone through as a woman or girl in the world that's been suffering."
The 28-year-old further announced that she will compile these stories and get them heard to amplify their voice. "Together, we can achieve a world where she is equal," she concluded.
Combating sexual assault was a prevalent theme at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival. While musicians such as Shawn Mendes, Janet Jackson, and Cardi B, performed, panic broke out briefly when a fence barrier collapsed.
However, Coldplay singer Chris Martin told concertgoers that they were "all safe" and had nothing to worry about.
