HeForSheThe UN Women National Committee Canada announced that it is joining the UN Women in the launch of the HeForShe international solidarity campaign on September 20, 2014.

The UN Women developed the HeForShe campaign to encourage and engage men and boys in the development of solutions to end gender discrimination and inequality. The campaign also aims to highlight the importance of inclusive collaboration in enacting positive change for the world’s women.

UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson is co-hosting a special event HeForShe Campaign at UN Headquarters in New York on 20 September.

“Women’s empowerment and gender equality are not solely women’s issues,” said UN Women National Committee Canada President Almas Jiwani. “The marginalization of women has negative effects for all aspects of society, from stunting economic growth to discouraging political and policy diversity. Men need to be informed about these problems, and more importantly be a part of the conversation in creating solutions.”
