Gender inequality is one of the most persistent human rights violations of our time and it continues to manifest in egregious ways around the world. In September 2014, UN Women and global campaign ambassador Emma Watson launched HeForShe – a solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity, for the benefit of all. It provides a platform for men to self-identify with issues of gender equality and its benefits, which liberate, not only women, but also men, from prescribed social roles and gender stereotypes.

We invite men and boys to become advocates, to break the silence, to raise your voices and take action. Sign the HeForShe Commitment today and take steps to make gender equality a reality.
