The world is at a turning point. People everywhere understand and support the idea of gender equality. They know it’s not just a women’s issue, it’s a human rights issue. And when these powerful voices are heard, they will change the world. The time for that change is now.

HeForShe is inviting people around the world to stand together to create a bold, visible force for gender equality. And it starts by taking action right now to create a gender equal world. 

HeForShe is a Solidarity Movement and urges everyone on earth to be a feminist and embrace feminist ways, encourage gender equality, speak up against gender related violence and work towards a gender equal world! 

Created by UN Women, the United Nations entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women, the HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality
provides a systematic approach and targeted platform on which men and boys can engage and become change agents towards the achievement of gender equality.


Achieving gender equality in our lifetimes requires an innovative, inclusive approach that both recognizes men and boys as partners for women’s rights, and acknowledges the ways in which they also benefit from this equality.

HeForShe invites men and boys to build on the work of the women’s movement as equal partners, crafting and implementing a shared vision of gender equality that will benefit all of humanity. Since its launch on 20 September, 2014, at the United Nations by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, Emma Watson, hundreds of thousands of men from around the world
including Heads of State, CEOs, and global luminaries, from all walks of life have committed to gender equality.

HeForShe has been the subject of more than 2 billion conversations on social media, with off-line activities reaching every corner of the globe.

Through this petition, I urge you, dear human, to be HeForShe.
