Give a flower. Get a smile

UN Women Solidarity Movement for Gender Equality

Gender equality is everyone’s responsibility.

Statistics show that we still have a long way to go with gender equality. Around the world millions of girls are deprived proper education, suffer from gender discrimination, miss out on opportunities, and earn less than their male counterparts.

UN Women’s HeForShe movement is about making a change to this. But it’s not just up to women. Every gender plays an instrumental role in facilitating change. Graduate House is about inclusion. It’s about equality. That’s why our Residents have started the ‘give a flower, get a smile’ campaign. When you share a flower with someone, it’s representative of your commitment to pursuing gender equality. It’s time for change because everyone’s lives matter. Make a pledge, and push for gender equality today. Learn more.

Make a pledge

We have an opportunity to work together to be advocates for change for gender equality. The promotion of gender equality in our communities is an important expression of our respect for all of humanity. It is essential that girls and women are treated as equals, with respect and given equal opportunity. Read Chair of Council, Rhys Watson’s note on gender equality.

Gender equality is not just a women’s issue, it’s a human rights issue that benefits everyone. It is imperative that we continue to raise awareness and take positive action about equality. This is something that everyone of us can do something about – and we can do it right now. I strongly encourage you to join your fellow residents at Graduate House in their HeForShe Campaign to support gender equality. Sometimes an intention is not enough. Let’s come together in order to ensure a future where, in particular all of our girls and women, know that their lives matter, that we’re looking out for them, and that everything can be, and will be, OK.
