HeForShe | Inspirational Men supporting Gender

 

WeAreTheCity is in support of the United Nation’s (UN) HeForShe campaign and agree with the goal of having more men and boys engaged with women’s rights and part of the gender equality debate.

The UN launched the HeForShe campaign in September 2014 at an event hosted by UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson, whose call to include more men and boys in the fight for gender equality quickly went viral.

This section of WeAreTheCity is home to stories and interviews with some of the many men who are in support of the HeForShe campaign. We are talking to male supporters of HeForShe to showcase the changes they are implementing, within their businesses, in the hope that others will follow suit.
