I understand the HeForShe movement is a global initiative spotlighting men (officially, “a solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half”), but holding a gender equality discussion without inviting any women kind of makes for bad optics.
Also, men clearly need more appreciation:
Xinhua caption [sic]: “Actor Zhang Xiaolong (R,1) receives the certification of appreciation from Roberta Clarke(Middle), Regional Director of the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.”
It’s almost as if the HeForShe China Launch on Sunday was organized by Republicans.
