International Women’s Day 2017

Today March 8th, 2017 it is International Women’s Day!

One woman inspired me in september 2014.

Her speech is since then my inspiration: Emma Watson at the HeForShe Campaign 2014 – Official UN Video

These are my inspirations for today, it all starts with awareness, gender equality:

YouTube: HeForShe Arts Week 2017 Press Launch

This is a video where you see in the first few minutes how it all started with the HeForShe Campaign and everything that has been done the past 2,5 years. A wonderful inspiration and it creates awareness widely.(68:40 min)

Are you #HeForShe? Make the commitment:

“Stand Together. What we share is more powerful than what divides us. Take action now to create a gender equal world.”

Take action or part in one of these issues:

  • Education: “We all have the right to attend school and recieve a quality education.”
  • Health: “We all have the right to receive quality healthcare and information.”
  • Identity: “We all have the right to live and love free of limiting gender stereotypes.”
  • Work: “We all have the right to equal opportunity and equal pay.”
  • Violence: “We all have the right to live free from violence, harassment and fear.”
  • Politics: “We all have the right to vote, serve and lead. “
