“HeForShe” turns 2by Aline Michel
On September 21st 2016 the “HeForShe” movement, supported by Emma Watson, celebrated its 2nd anniversary.
The celebration happened at MoMA in New York with the presence of some notable guests, including The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, actor Edgar Ramírez, and, of course, our Emma Watson.
At the end of the night Watson gave a speech thanking everything the “HeForShe” already achieved.
“I am proud to have been part of lots of amazing things in my life, but there is nothing I am prouder of than being part of this.”
Since the UN launched this initiative, it has received 1.1 million commitments to its pledge from men and women across the world. The site also boasts that 1.3 billion conversations have been started on social media about fighting for gender equality.
