“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“
There are many great organizations bringing folks together in the fight for equality for everyone. One of which that has stood out, as of lately, is the HeForShe movement. They have been in the limelight working with celebrities, world leaders, and the media in an effort to bring awareness, that equality is on the rise and can be achieved if we all work together.
HeForShe just recently celebrated their two year anniversary in September of 2016.
“HeForShe wants every voice to be heard in classrooms and corner offices around the world. Everyone has a say. Everyone has a role. Every unique contribution is essential to achieving gender equality.“
I strongly give my recommendation for all Optimistic Feminists to go check out the HeForShe movement so together we can spread awareness for equality for everyone.
