Do you have a story to share about boys or men helping to ensure gender equity?


Specifically, we will highlight the stories of individual men and boys embracing the principles of #HeForShe by taking actions at the local level. We believe it is important to share these stories to help inspire others to take action in ways that are personal and meaningful to them.  We also want to underscore the many countries involved in this campaign.

We are asking for your support in gathering these stories and visual assets that we will use over the course of the campaign. Specifically, we are looking for each Civil Society partner to share at least one local story that we can feature on our website and social media channels. The stories should be about an individual or group of individuals taking action on their own (rather than through the work of an organization) to support gender equality in their community. For example, we heard from one man who had formed a “husband school” to teach abusive men in his community to be better husbands and fathers.

We are open to all types of stories, but we have provided a form to help you gather all of the information we need.  It also provides specifications around visual assets. Would you please send us at least one story and visual assets, by 31 January 2015, to

Thank you in advance for your support with this important cause, and please do not hesitate to contact the HeForShe team with any questions:
