Sign Up and Take Action Today!

Our goal is to mobilize “one billion men by July 2015” to help communities around the world develop sustainable and transformative  programs to promote gender equality.

Now it’s time to unify our efforts. HeForShe is a solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity, for the benefit of all.





The National Capital Chapter is one of thirteen chapters in the United States working to support the US National Committee's mission of "working toward a world where women live free from violence, poverty and inequality."

Together with the U.S. National Committee for UN Women, the National Capital Chapter raises funds and awareness to support UN Women’s projects around the world, enhancing women's economic and security rights, ending violence against women, reducing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS among women and girls, and advancing gender justice in democratic governance in stable and fragile states.
