Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be the newest ambassador for Emma Watsonâ€™s He For She campaign, the actress said in Ottawa on Wednesday.
"I canâ€™t wait to see what youâ€™re going to do with that title,â€ť Watson said.
The two met on Parliament Hill to discuss womenâ€™s issues and the project, which encourages more men to work for gender equality.
â€śThe He For She campaign has had extraordinary impact around the world making men champions of womenâ€™s issues,â€ť Trudeau said.
He For She is part of Watsonâ€™s work as an ambassador for UN Women. The project just celebrated its second birthday.
"This is the first campaign of its kind at the UN,â€ť Watson said in 2014. â€śWe want to try and galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality.â€ť
Trudeau made international headlines last year when he announced his cabinet would be have an equal number of men and women, a move Watson called "inspiring.â€ť
