I didn't know what to expect when I started this Book Club. To have 100k members in less than a month is amazing and for this I am so grateful but even more amazing is the level at which I see these topics being engaged with and discussed and how generous people are being with their responses and insights into the material. This is what is meaningful to me. Then more recently to look on Instagram and literally see people from all over the world coming together to discuss these issues in groups, over Skype, in person, mothers and daughters, friends, selfies, pictures of cats and dogs curled up next to their owners alongside #MyLifeOnTheRoad, peoples' favourite reading snacks.... For this I cannot thank each of you enough because frankly it's just so heart warming. It's so much more than I had allowed myself to imagine it could be. Gloria emphasises in all of her work the need for solidarity and community; we are 'linked not ranked'. If this book club can be that, a link between people, then I've done a good thing and I'm very proud. I'll keep going out there and trying to make this the best it can be, harassing whoever I need to harass to get...

UN Women today announced the launch of the first-ever HeForShe Arts Week this March across New York City, in partnership with the City of New York and the Public Theater, which will serve as the inaugural theatrical partner for this annual initiative.

“The arts both reflect and influence culture. At its best, art shapes how we see the world,” said Emma Watson, British Actor and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador. “So it makes perfect sense for HeForShe to partner with arts institutions like The Public Theater to evolve the behaviours, norms and perceptions that shape our cultural view of gender.”

During the inaugural arts week in March, other partner institutions such as venues for ballets, operas, Broadway shows, concerts, as well as other theatres, galleries, and museums will join the HeForShe Initiative and spotlight the work of UN Women as the global champion for the rights of women and girls, in addition donating a percentage of proceeds to...

Emma Watson has started a Feminist book club on the “book networking” website Goodreads. After asking fans on twitter to suggest names she chose Our Shared Shelf and her book club went live on Thursday. The ‘club’ is a public group on Goodreads, open to any registered member.



[i]Dear Readers,

As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I’ve been discovering so much that, at times, I’ve felt like my head was about to explode… I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I’m learning and hear your thoughts too.

The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month’s last week (to give everyone time to read it!). I will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but I would love for this to grow into an open discussion with and between you all. Whenever possible I hope to have the...
