Provided you have Facebook or a mobile or the internet, you've probably seen or heard of the fantastic speech Emma Watson recently gave on behalf of the UN's He For She campaign. Beyond her super slick ponytail and structural, white suit dress, (which I must admit, was what led me to click on the video in the first place) more importantly, was her message: a call to arms for the solidarity movement towards gender equality. Feminism was the word "this Harry Potter girl" turned eloquent spokeswoman was trying to reclaim. I am a feminist. She is a feminist. You should be too, whether man or woman. Because, by definition, it isn't all bra burning, male bashing fury but a simple advocation of equality. A woman and a man in the same position should earn equal pay. A woman should be given the right to make choices regarding her own body just as her male counterparts can do for theirs. A woman and a man should jointly support the movement to level the playing field. For our sisters, our mothers, our daughters. So, call your brothers, your fathers, your sons to the movement and, if it's the word that scares them, call them Advocates of Humanity because, without one half, the other would be very much alone.

And, if like me, you've already got plans to convince your boyfriend/best friend/awesome male companion to sign the He For She commitment - there's always also the idea of coordinating outfits as a bonus sign of solidarity:
He For She. His & Hers.
