British actor and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson will take part in a special Facebook Live event in London as part of International Women’s Day on Sunday, 8 March, at 5 p.m. GMT (1 p.m. EST).
The event will include 120 young fans who will have a chance to ask questions and have an intimate conversation with Emma Watson about gender equality and UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, a global solidarity movement to engage men and boys in the struggle.
Audience members were selected after taking part in a contest, in which youth in London were invited to submit a personal story of impact and actions they have taken to advance gender equality, in 500 words or less, with one to two photos or a short video. UN Women then selected the 120 individuals to become audience members for this special event.
Fans around the world can watch the Livestream of this event on Facebook.
