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.

She was ordering a coffee next to me, and giving me the eye… to help her. I told the creepy barista to back off and stop hassling her for her number.

‘I pledge to call out verbal harassment.’

Nasty C (Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo) is a rapper, songwriter and record producer. He was the youngest recipient for an award at the 2015 South African Hip Hop Awards.

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.
