HeForShe Comes to Hangzhou October 11th - 18th

Last year, UN Women first launched their HeForShe campaign, where men were encouraged to join women in the struggle for gender equality. This October, HeForShe is coming to Hangzhou! From October 11th to October 18th, lectures will be holding at Zhejiang University.
Celebrities, businesspeople, university presidents and students will share their stories and opinions on gender equality and the HeForShe campaign. Just like a bicycle needs two wheels to move forward, doesn’t society need both genders in order to develop? To bring forward this idea, a bicycle rally race will be held on October 17th. On the 18th, a flash mob will be held to show support for the HeForShe campaign. On October 22nd and 23rd, Gender Equality and Corporate Social Responsibility Conference as well as the Launch Ceremony of the HeForShe Campaign will be held at the Hyatt Hotel in Hangzhou. The Assistant UN Secretary-General and UN Women Deputy Executive Director Ms. Lakshmi Puri, political leaders, entrepreneurs and celebrities from all over the world will be present to discuss the topic of gender equality. We look forward to see you there!
