On September 20, 2014, UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson made a speech launching the UN’s HeForShe global campaign. The campaign is intended to encourage men and boys to advocate for gender equality, on the premise that gender equality is a human rights issue, the resolution of which would benefit all people regardless of gender. Men and boys who wish to be part of the campaign can visit www.heforshe.org to join the solidarity movement, and can tweet supportive messages under the hashtag #HeForShe.
What you can do: Women and girls: tell the men and boys in your lives about
the campaign, and encourage them to participate. Men and boys: participate!
