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.

Are you #HeForShe? Make the Commitment

I am one of billions…

...who believe that everyone is born free and equal. I will take action against gender bias, discrimination and violence to bring the benefits of equality to us all.
