For 16 Days of Activism, we've collaborated with eight male celebrities to form pledges against the everyday sexual harassment of women. Support and share their pledges below. For every engagement, we'll donate R1 to HeforShe – a UN Women-backed initiative that champions a systematic approach for a gender-equal and non-violent world.

It was late so I offered her a ride, thinking, you never know… That douche who hit on my girlfriend might try something too. I wanted to make sure she got home safe.

‘I pledge to never be a bystander to potential abuse.’

For 16 Days of Activism, and to raise awareness around gender-based violence (GBV) in South Africa, COSMOPOLITAN has invited eight male celebrities to take a pledge and stand up to everyday sexual harassment of women.

#COSMOMenStandUp asks men and people of all genders to stand in solidarity with women to create a united force for gender equality. For every pledge or engagement of support, COSMO will donate R1 to HeForShe, a UN Women-backed initiative that champions a systematic approach for a gender-equal and non-violent world.
