Last year, Emma Watson was named UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she has been living up to her title very well. Watson launched the HeForShe campaign that aims to get one billion men and boys involved in the fight for gender equality.
On January 23rd, 2015 Watson officially kicked off the campaign as well as the HeForShe IMPACT 10X10X10 Program, with a powerful and influential speech at the World Economic Forum at Davos. The speech encouraged world and corporate leaders to take action and join the fight for gender equality.
Watson expressed, “IMPACT 10X10X10 is about concrete commitments to change, the visibility of these commitments and the measurability of them too. It is my belief that there is a greater understanding than ever that women need to be equal participant in our homes, in our societies, in our governments, and in our workplaces.”
