As President of UN Women National Committee Canada, I am excited to announce the launch of the HeForShe campaign, which aims to mobilize one billion men globally by June 2015 to take a stand against gender inequality.

Now it’s time to unify our efforts. HeForShe is a solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity, for the benefit of all.
Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that requires my participation. I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.
