Indian actor, director, and founder of Men Against Rape and Discrimination (MARD) Farhan Akhtar is Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women South Asia. He was touched by the struggle to end violence against women, when a woman he worked with was sexually assaulted and killed in her own home. Farhan established MARD to advocate for change in the ideas of masculinity, and to campaign for the end of violence against women. Watch him raise his voice as a #HeforShe.
"I want to call on all men and boys to be a catalyst for change and through our actions create a value system to end gender disparity."
