UN Women HeForShe Film Series

Our UN Women HeForShe film series, in collaboration with Jimmy Choo and hosted by Curzon Cinemas, has come to an end. 

Beginning on International Women’s Day, and continuing throughout March, our film series celebrated the work and stories of women.

We watched some incredible films and performances, including The Quiet Passion, Beauty and The Beast, Lady Macbeth and Their Finest.

Supporters enjoyed Nyetimber sparkling English wine and Green & Black's ice cream in their ticket price. And best of all, fifty per cent of ticket sales went directly to UN Women NC UK, to support the important work of UN Women around the world. 

Film series breakfast launch

To kick off our film series, we hosted a breakfast with 12 women leaders from the creative industries, including Christaine Amanpour (CNN), Vicky Featherstone (The Royal Court) and MyAnna Buring (Downton Abbey, Twilight), as they shared their experiences, knowledge and ideas for the future.

The event was a chance to meet other inspiring women and forge supportive networks. And of course, all proceeds went to UN Women NC UK.

A week of culture, arts and awareness raising

Throughout HeForShe Arts week, performers and artists touched hearts and minds, raising questions about how we see gender.

With 40 events in seven days, there was something for everyone. There was everything from comedy to art to panel discussions, and even dancing in Covent Garden! Check out all the photos on our Instagram

You can also see proud diversity champions including Sadiq Khan, Emma Rice and Melanie C, expressing their excitement for the start of Arts Week in our official trailer

A huge thanks to everyone who took part, shared their stories on social media and raised awareness of gender equality this week!

What is HeForShe?

HeForShe is the solidarity movement aiming to achieve gender equality in our lifetime. It was launched in 2014 by UN Women Global Ambassador Emma Watson.

HeForShe believes gender equality is a basic human right which concerns everyone. But for us, the current pace of change is too slow.

It is time to create an equal society. We need to fight the negative inequalities happening to all of us, in every country. We need you to stand with us as agents of change. 

We need to act now to create a better world.
