Fortunately, as the years go by, some men have begun to defend women and join them in the fight for gender equality. Men are starting to promote equality and call out all the wrongdoings in the past millenniums.
One of these movements is called HeForShe.
It’s vision is to bring harmony from one half of the community to support the other half. They believe that the only way to stop sexism is by promoting gender equality. The campaign encourages both women and men, together, to put an end to sexism.
⊕ Gender inequality is one of the most persistent human rights violations of our time. Despite many years of promoting gender equality, inequalities among women/girls and men/boys continue to manifest in egregious ways around the world.
⊕ HeForShe is a solidarity movement for gender equality that engages men and boys as advocates and stakeholders, to break the silence, raise their voices and take action for the achievement of gender equality.
⊕ Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that affects all of us– women and girls, men and boys alike. We all benefit socially, politically, and economically from gender equality in our everyday lives. When women are empowered, the whole of humanity benefits. Gender equality liberates not only women but also men, from prescribed social roles and gender stereotypes.
