How are UK universities getting involved in HeForShe?

Gemma Tracey, Senior Policy Advisor at the Equality Challenge Unit has posted an article about the UN Women’s HeForShe campaign. UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. Both the University of Leicester and Oxford University are inolved in a pilot initiative to ‘drive change from the top.’

‘In 2014 UN Women launched HeForShe – their solidarity movement for gender equality – with the aim of “bring[ing] together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity, for the benefit of all.” The high profile launch by British actor Emma Watson encouraged men to pledge their commitment to HeForShe.’
