In her gender equality speech, UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson discusses the next phase for He for She, a UN Women's solidarity initiative. As the actress explains, Impact 10X10X10 is about about engaging governments, businesses and universities to make concrete commitments to gender equality. This step in the He for She movement comes four months after its highly successful launch.

The gender equality speech asks men to share their stories of how they are empowering the women in their lives. For those who want to help but do not know how, Emma Watson encourages them to make their own commitment, make it public and report back on their progress. Impact 10X10X10 is about the visibility and measureability of commitments to gender equality. She feels now more than ever people understand women need to be equal participants and the world is being held back because they aren't.
