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.

I really wanted to be with her so I forced myself… to be patient and take things slowly, on her terms.

‘I pledge to respect her boundaries.’

Kyle Deutsch is a musician and a chiropractor. He has created many award-winning songs and was among the Top 5 on Idols season 10.

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.
