UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador Anne Hathaway on Wednesday delivered a keynote address at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, in commemoration of International Women’s Day. This is her first public appearance in this role.
“Today, on International Women’s Day, I would like to thank all those who went before in creating our current policies,” Hathaway said. “Let us honor them and build upon what they started by shifting our language, and therefore our consciousness, away from gender and towards opportunity.”
I have to admit that my perspective shifted a bit as I watched the full speech by Anne Hathaway and was surprised to see her identify a path forward that empowers the cause of men and women alike, showing a common cause between the Women’s Rights Movement and the Father’s rights Movement. In focusing on the best interest of our children and recognizing the right and most importantly the responsibility of both parents to nurture, love and provide for our children. Laws must be constructed to strengthen and empower the uniqueness of each and every one of our families.
