Since HeForShe launched in New York last September
I think it would be fair to say
that my colleagues and I
have been stunned by the response
The HeForShe conference was watched over 11 million times
sparking 1.2 billion social media conversations
culminating in the #HeForShe hashtag becoming so popular
that Twitter painted it on the walls of its headquarters
and men from almost every country in the world
signed up to our commitment
Everyone, from Desmond Tutu to
Prince Harry to Hillary Clinton to Yoko Ono
have issued their support or contacted us
since September 20th
Everything from marathons being run
merchandise being created
15-year-old boys writing to national newspapers
deploring female discrimination
young girls collecting hundreds of signatures
It's all happened in the last four months
I couldn't have dreamed it
but it's happened
Thank you so much
Thank you so much for watching
and thank you so much for your support
So what is "Impact 10x10x10"?
It's about engaging governments, businesses
and universities and having them make concrete
commitments to gender equality
But I want to hear from the human beings
that are behind these organizations
I spoke about some of my story in September
What are your stories?
Girls, who have been your mentors?
Parents, did you make sure you treated your children equally?
If so, how have you done it?
Husbands, have you been supporting your female
partner privately so that she can fulfill
her dreams, too?
Young men, have you spoken up
in a conversation when a woman was casually
degraded or dismissed?
How did this affect you?
How did this affect the women you stood up for?
Businessmen, have you mentored, supported
or engaged women in leadership positions?
Writers, have you challenged the language
and imagery used to portray women in the media?
CEOs, have you implemented the women's empowerment principles in your own company?
What change have you seen?
Are you someone that has been persuading men
to become HeForShes
and collecting their signatures for their website?
How many have you got?
We want to know, we want to hear from you
One of the biggest pieces of feedback
I've had since my speech
is that men and women want to help
but they aren't sure how best to do it
Men say they've signed the petition. What now?
The truth is, the what now is down to you
What your HeForShe commitment will be is personal
and there is no best way
Everything is valid
Decide what your commitment is, make it public
and then please report back to us on your progress
so that we can share your story
We want to support, guide and reinforce your efforts
IMPACT 10x10x10
is about concrete commitments to change
the visibility of these commitments
and the measurability of them too
How has the campaign impacted me so far
I have my breath taken away when a fan told me
that since watching my speech
she has stopped herself being beaten up by her father
I've been stunned by the amount of men in my life
that have contacted me since my speech
to tell me to keep going
and that they want to make sure that their daughters will be still alive
to see a world where women have parity
economically and politically
While I would love to claim
that this campaign and the results of it
are the results of my incredible speechwriting skills
I know that it is not, it is because the ground is fertile
It is my belief that there is a greater understanding than ever
that women need to be equal participants
in our homes, in our societies, in our governments
and in our workplaces
and they know that the world is being held back in every way
because they are not
Women share this planet 50/50
and they are underrepresented
their potential astonishingly untapped
We are very excited to be launching IMPACT 10X10X10
to bring HeforShe into its next phase
If you're a HeForShe, and I'm assuming you are
because otherwise you'd be in somebody else's press conference right now
I'm here to ask you
What is the impact you can have?
How, what, where, when, and with whom?
We want to help, we want to know and we want to here from you
Thank you very much
