non-discrimination and equal opportunities
all forms of discrimination must be ended. Women and girls must be granted equal opportunities with men and boys in employment, leadership and decision-making at all levels. They must play a role in peace building and state-building and have full access to information and communications technology.
United Colors of Benetton reaffirms its commitment to the empowerment and legitimation of women around the world with the new #UnitedByHalf campaign. Kicking off in India on Valentine’s Day as a means of promoting gender equality, the campaign is now being launched worldwide just in time for International Women’s Day.
All for one. One for all. This is the message that we sent out on November 25th 2015, to celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, promoted by the UN. The campaign features three young women, each ready to take on a variety of professions that all women over the course of their lives should be able to partake in, without having to suffer through the effects of physical and psychological harm.
