What is #heforshe?
In a speech that was given at the launch, Watson challenged males all over the world to think of their daughters, sisters, mothers, and other female influences in their lives. She wants all the 'he’s' to stand up for the 'she’s' in their lives.
While the campaign is geared towards men, Watson makes sure to note that it is also about human rights, violence and discrimination should not be tolerated towards anyone. The initiative is about bringing people together to fight for a cause that is important to the human race. If you choose to take the pledge at heforshe.org, it means you are pledging to have no tolerance for women being violated or knowingly discriminated against. It means you believe in equal rights for opportunities. It means that you know that this is a global issue important to all humanity. Finally, it means that you will speak up when seeing or knowing a woman is being abused or harassed.
So, while you may be on the fence on this campaign, just remember that there are females in your life that would love for you to speak up alongside them. Just think of the possibilities when you decide to break your silence. Be a he that all your 'she’s' can count on. Check out the website for more information. http://www.heforshe.org/
