On September 26th, the United Nations HeForShe movement is convening world leaders, global CEOs, activists and celebrities to introduce groundbreaking solutions to achieve gender equality around the world.
Her Majesty Queen Rania, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Award-winning Actress and UN Women’s Global Goodwill Ambassador, Anne Hathaway, and Actor and Activist, Winston Duke are set to issue a global call to action for gender equality during the Summit. Musical Artist MILCK is also scheduled to perform.
Leading up to the Summit, Actor and HeForShe Advocate Mark Consuelos is launching the #MorePowerfulTogether campaign featuring major landmarks globally including the Empire State Building and CN Tower, Toronto. These buildings will turn off half of their lights on the evening of September 24th – creating a visual metaphor that illustrates the power lost when the world excludes half its population – women – from society, economies and communities.

Created by UN Women in 2014, the HeForShe solidarity movement has so far mobilized 1.7 million men as advocates for gender equality, generating more than 1.3 billion conversations on social media.
