According to Amishi Dhanuka of Arpan Publishing: "There is tremendous opportunity and space in the market for women's magazines. But we did not want to launch another one-of-the-kind in the already crowded space of women's magazine. W! Womanpower is targeted at readers of Marwar and other individuals who are seeking to know more on enterprising and successful women. Hence, the editorial content is focused towards the lives and experiences of women achievers." Moreover, adds Dhanuka: "The Marwar magazine is a name synonymous with success and successful people. And it is now only natural that Marwar celebrates the success of women by launching W! Womanpower."
