Emma Watson Announces Launch Of HeForShe Campaign

"We want to end gender inequality and to do this, we need everyone involved."

U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson gave a very inspiring and moving speech about gender inequality at the United Nations headquarters on September 21.

During her speech, she announced the launch of a new campaign called HeForShe, which aims to invite men to join women in the fight for equality.

"We want to end gender inequality and to do this, we need everyone involved. This is the first campaign of its kind at the UN," explained Emma. "We want to try to galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for change and we don’t just want to talk about it. We want to try and make sure that it’s tangible."

She also formally invited men to join the cause. "Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too."

You go, girl! Watch her full speech below.
