#HeForShe  UN Women solidarity movement for gender equality. If gender bias begins with us, it can end with us.

Repost from @enyamayaro: “We begun #HeForShe with the hope that communities would own the movement and make it their own. However, not once did I imagine spending an evening in a tavern (community bar) listening to men voluntarily discuss #GenderEquality & commit to ending #GenderBasedViolence. Even more surreal was discovering the community’s ownership in rebranding their taverns ‘I AM A HeForShe TAVERN’ and collectively setting a new code of conduct and concrete commitments towards each other (see signage pic) ————————————————————————There are now more than 144 #HeForShe Taverns in #Klerksdorp #SouthAfrica, engaging more than 4000 men. Over the past months women have begun joining these weekly #HeForShe discussions, making them a truly community driven solidarity initiative. One guy told me, “We wanted to change the negative perception of taverns —from a place where men get drunk, then go home and beat up their wives—to a safe space where men still come to drink but also on a weekly basis commit to discussing issues of positive masculinity.” ————————————————————————
This week’s topics were: ‘If a woman comes into a tavern wearing a mini-skirt is she asking for it?’ & ‘If a condom breaks whilst having sex with a partner should you tell her?’ ————————————————————————

Shinzō Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, a HeForShe IMPACT Champion, has placed women's economic empowerment at the forefront of the country's development strategy. Women's economic empowerment remains one of the world's biggest untapped resources. As a HeForShe IMPACT Champion, H.E. Shinzō Abe has worked to ensure that women join, and remain, in the workforce by enhancing women's working conditions, employment and leadership opportunities. This has resulted in the number of employed women increasing by 1.5 million and the employment rate among women aged 25-44 increasing by 5%. The percentage of women who continue to work after the birth of their first child has exceeded 50% for the first time! ————————————————————————HeForShe is a solutions-driven movement, generating concrete and scalable gender equality solutions through the work of its HeForShe IMPACT Lab, a platform for incubating and pilot-testing solutions that have the power to see gender equality achieved in our life-time. #HeForShe #GenderEquality #Japan #MothersDay @shinzoabe
