This is a post for the gentlemen.
Gender Equality is everyone’s issue and I am extending the invitation to you to join your mothers, your sisters, your aunts, your cousins, your wives and your friends in the #HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality.
If not me, who? If not now, when?
I think it is right that I am paid the same as my male counterparts, I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body, I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that will affect my life, I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men. But sadly I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to recieve these rights. No country in the world can yet say that they have achieved gender equality. These rights I consider to be human rights.
