#Cosmo Com­mits and So Can You!

We’re join­ing hands with Gucci’s Chime For Change cam­paign for women em­pow­er­ment.

For nearly 50 years, it has been Cos­mopoli­tan’s mis­sion to change women’s lives for the bet­ter. When Helen Gur­ley Brown took over the mag­a­zine in 1965, she pro­claimed that it was a woman’s right to have bet­ter sex and bet­ter re­la­tion­ships. She em­pow­ered women to feel beau­ti­ful, healthy, and con­fi­dent in the bed­room and the board­room, and asked why many women didn’t have ad­e­quate ac­cess to health­care, con­tra­cep­tion, ed­u­ca­tion, or en­joy equal rights.

THE WORLD CATCHES UP TO COSMO

And slowly the world be­gan to catch up with Cosmo by mak­ing it the world’s best-sell­ing mag­a­zine, with edi­tions that reach 100 mil­lion women all over the globe. We call it the Cosmo Ef­fect. But while many of us have come a long way, there is still work to be done, and Cosmo is even more com­mit­ted to help than ever. So we are con­tin­u­ing the mis­sion with @Cos­moCom­mits, and show­ing where we stand on is­sues that are im­por­tant to us—and to you. To­day, we're shar­ing with you what we think must change in In­dia and what we are com­mit­ted to help change. And we're ask­ing you to make your voice heard, by log­ging onto so­cial me­dia, tag­ging and post­ing mes­sages and pho­tos of your­self. What are you com­mit­ted to do?

CHIM­ING FOR CHANGE

@Cos­moCom­mits is proud and com­mit­ted to part­ner with Gucci as it rolls out its Chime for Change cam­paign, which fo­cuses on im­prov­ing the lives of women in three ba­sic ar­eas—Jus­tice, Health and Ed­u­ca­tion. Join­ing the global move­ment, the Chime for Change ini­tia­tive—whose co-founders are Beyónce, Frida Gian­inni and Salma Hayek-Pin­ault (top to bot­tom)— strives to unite the dif­fer­ent causes and peo­ple be­hind them to cre­ate a global force for change. “I have al­ways felt strongly about equal op­por­tu­nity for women,” says Bey­oncé. “Girls have to be taught from early on that they are strong and ca­pa­ble of be­ing any­thing they want to be. It’s up to us to change the statis­tics for women around the world.” Chime For Change kicks off on June 1 in Lon­don with a con­cert to raise funds for women’s is­sues, with Bey­oncé lead­ing a star-stud­ded line-up.
