UN Women


UN Women is consistently one of the most vocal advocates for a broad range of women’s issues worldwide.  “UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.”  I am proud to be an active member – read about them or find a local chapter here.


Recently UN Women launched the Heforshe.org campaign to involve men in the campaign for gender equality.  Add your voice: go to their site, read and listen, download their logo as your profile. Where else can you listen to Matt Damon, Antonio Banderas,  Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Patrick Stewart and Ban Ki-moon all on  the same page?  In French, Spanish AND English.   See also the NYTimes article about the campaign.
