Actress ANNE HATHAWAY took on a new role — directing two all-male panels to highlight how men can ensure women receive equal pay and end violence against women. She said she was unapologetic about leading discussions with men only at the HeForShe Impact Summit.
HeForShe was launched by UN Women at the United Nations four years ago with the help of “Harry Potter” actress Emma Watson. “Today the men on stage with me are here because they are throwing a huge rock through the glass ceiling,” Hathaway, 35, who was appointed a goodwill ambassador for UN Women two years ago, told a packed hall in New York. “I want to thank you for giving us the evidence that we have always known — equality is the only way forward,” said the US actress who won an Academy Award in 2013 for her role in ‘Les Miserables’.
