The Emma Watson HeForShe campaign has been around for a few years now, gaining much support along the way for its innovative presentation of feminist ideals. Now looking to expand on it in a way that directly concerns young women and men alike, the UN-associated organization is garnering help from universities to ensure that each institutionalizes zero-tolerance policies when in comes to sexual assault.

In addition to promoting this, the Emma Watson HeForShe campaign will also aim to "provide campus-wide training and briefings [on gender issues] for all faculty, administration, and students," as well as close the gender gap in administration. Emma Watson reportedly described the organization's efforts by saying "A good university is like a tiny utopia -- it’s a miniature model of how the whole of society could look."
