Anne Hathaway Named UN Goodwill Ambassador
ANNE HATHAWAY has been named as a global goodwill ambassador for UN Women, following in the footsteps of Emma Watson and Nicole Kidman. The beautiful Oscar-winning actress, and new mother, will be working with the organisation to advance gender equality.
In a statement, Anne said – “I feel honoured and inspired by this opportunity to aid in advancing gender equality. Significant progress has already been made but it is time that we collectively intensify our efforts and ensure that true equality is finally realised.”
Anne Hathaway who welcomed her first child with husband Adam Shulman last month, will take up the role with immediate effect. Her responsibilities will include turning “the spotlight on the issue of the unequal burden of care work in the home as one of the key barriers to gender equality” and “working internationally to advance the adoption and implementation of policies that will bring measurable change” which includes “affordable childcare services and shared parental leave at both government and corporate levels.”
