Anne Hathaway – Gender and the Big Picture | SDG Action Zone | #UNGA

Anne Hathaway, UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, at the opening session of the SDG Action Zone entitled “The Big Picture”.

Across many dimensions, COVID-19 has dealt a massive setback to gender equality – impacting the way women live, work, and contribute to communities at large. From gender-based violence to stunted participation in the workforce, these setbacks need to be urgently addressed. The opening panel will set the stage of where we stand with respect to gender equality, and hint at the transformative solutions that will push this agenda forward. Nodding to the intergenerational transition at hand, the conversation will feature voices from different waves of feminism – the movements happening now, as well as those 25 years ago. Making gender equality a reality will require changing mindsets, discriminatory policies, and power structures – opening space so women can lead on the world’s big solutions.

Anne Hathaway – Academy Award-winning performer and producer, and long-standing supporter of girls’ and women’s rights, Anne Hathaway has been a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador since June 2016. In this role, she works to foster more positive mindsets and practical arrangements around workplaces that build and support equality for women, raising awareness of the issue of unequal burden of caregiving work in the home and advocating for affordable childcare services and shared parental leave. In addition, she serves on the advisory board for Lollipop Theater Network, an organization that screens movies in hospitals for pediatric patients suffering from chronic or life-threatening illness.

  5. Where exactly did the Talibans get legitimacy? By guns? By execution? By terrorism? – Admad Wali Massoud

    BEATING women depriving them to work?
    Burning SCHOOLS?
    Forcing people to vacate own houses to get it?
    No election?

    Is this the government UN will recognize?

  6. What is a Job, when we can live all in Freedom, by battling more by furthering first our Earth! Look into Germany, the so called deutsche land! The water is poisoned so that they need a ship with Oxigen, to get a bit more life into IT! We need lying detectors, a A.I. to find the bonding against fascism and racism, by going with a UBI, Smartphone for free, volume to down- and upload and a network of hearted people, which can bring together new ideas and forests to our mother! Then the female part can breath back again! But on this way: my message to you: you do more splitting then fitting in the middle of the „Witten“! Mothers cries and I can stand no longer! Think about the Bible’s story of the smallest or most more little thing, the little circle in the „weltenuhr“ worldclock or called atom or whatever give father Sheppard the Rhea Speed Wagon, health and that what he needs: PURE LOVE! Begun comes from lettin others have the same amount as you have, with the written points above! It is all possible and all stars can go back to heaven! CeeYah

  7. Nice video though everyone loves the luxury lifestyle…. But why is no one here talking about Bitcoin… Now's the best time to buy the dip and it's an opportunity that will grant you all the luxury you crave for ☺️

  8. Currently, the Republic of Korea is suffering from the dictatorship of the communists. South Korean President Moon Jae-in is a communist and a leftist pro-North Korean. The press is being controlled, and the people's freedom of expression is also being suppressed. Please spread this fact to liberal democracies around the world and get South Korea's left-wing President Moon Jae-in out.

  9. Women are always at receiving end during civil war or any natural calamity ,all the civil wars around the world are product and by products of the west remember this fact too

  10. Man don’t get the more pay on the jobs because they have balls ⚽️ ⚽️ . Actually all the hard working jobs such like mathematicians, architecture, construction, road buildings, scientists, mechanics, technicians and all other major jobs are occupied by men. But what woman do if they get chance from their emotions, they get the same pay as men gets on the same position. I think 🤔 woman always think about the balls but ignore the fact what men do out there in practically.

  11. You say women should be exact equals to the society , then you should not get anything extra in child care and health leaves , because men do not get that , I am not an anti feminist but you should present your statements well , you should present your terms as women should get equality in terms of requirements and in general , rather than just in general .

  12. So what's wrong with the gender roles , if it is just a one sided thing , a part of the female population wants to retaliate the household care and at the same time want to rely on the men for their daily expenses , in short by running this propaganda of feminism , not all , but some women want to choose the easy way out , I am not an anti feminist , but why are we so blind that while referring to the horrors of the past we refuse to expect the blind spots of the present day ??
