He For She

Emma Watson’s moving and powerful speech on gender equality to the United Nations.

Time for men to include our voice in the case for equality.

There’s much in this video (and the longer version which carries the full UN debate) that we in education have to think about long and hard. We have to be aware of how we individually and collectively perpetuate gender stereotypes that prevent equality and, as pointed out, this is a negative for both males and females in a modern society.
