It is very important, because all human beings are equal and have the same rights and opportunities, and is something that all the people need to know about.

It is very important, because all human beings are equal and have the same rights and opportunities, whether we are men or women. Also, all the women and men of the world are part of human history and each of them has a mission or job in life, and that must be respected by all people, whether they are very famous people or people that no one knows. Finally, all people must support the movements that are made against gender inequality and we must begin to be fair to all the people of the world.

Gender equality is important because often everyone's access to opportunities in the social, economic, political and domestic spheres is not respected. Nowadays, there has been an attempt to have a balance between genders because thanks to that, they provoke situations of violence, abuse and mistreatment, generating an individual and social imbalance.

Yes, since gender equality is something that is discussed a lot nowadays since there are many situations with if you are a woman they pay you less and if you are a man they pay you more and in certain things I agree that they are men's things but in A matter of work, I feel that women are capable of doing what they ask them and having a salary equal to that of a man, today there are many discussions about this since women are getting stronger to discuss this type of themes. And it is something that must be reasoned now days

Gender equality is a principle where both for men and women the opportunities and rights in any aspects of our daily lives (education, work and housing) must be equal. In my opinion, gender equality is currently a problem that must be eliminated in the world, since by not respecting this principle millions of people suffer from violence, inequality, injustice and discrimination, which have a negative impact to them person. Therefore, I personally believe that by disseminating the importance of the issue of gender equality as a society, we can raise awareness and generate a positive impact to carry out actions that generate this change in equality.

Yes, I think that gender equality is an important issue, because we as community need to be united and without gender preferences. So, if we stop having this problem, there will be more peace and harmony regardless of gender.

¡Absolutely! I, personally, think gender equality is something we all need to be conscious about because we all deserve an equal treatment. Boys and girls have rights that can’t be broken. In my opinion, this is a great opportunity not only for women, but also for men because it helps them understand that we aren’t talking about women rights, but about human rights. Like I already said, we all deserve to be treated the same. We are worthy of our rights and of receiving what we deserve. I, honestly, loved how are so many people involved in this project because, I know, they can make a huge impact in all our lives and in the world.

Yes, because women deserve equal things as same as men. Things as, rights, education, opportunities at work, respect. There are many countries that have different rules for women citizens that say that they aren't allowed to get an education, or some types of jobs that "are for men". Gender doesn't define our rights.

Yes, I think it is an important issue we need to treat. Because there are so many women’s and men’s getting discriminated thanks of the skin color, if they rich or poor or just not getting a job for being a women or men. Gender equality means that women and men need to be treated the same way not less not more like having the same chances of getting a job.

It is a very important issue because for years women have not been valued for what they are, there are women who could not have the same income as a man even if they work in the same job, that is simply unfair. Now we are all fighting for equality so that women and men are on the same level. It's just that there are some people who have grown up with the idea that men are superior and clearly it's a difficult thing to get rid of the idea that was instilled in them from a young age.

In my opinion this is important, but if today most people who complain about the lack of equality towards women, mostly had the necessary knowledge on the subject, they would not make a fool of themselves

This campaign, in my opinion, is an incredible idea to achieve a gender equality worldwide. Emma Watson is an actress recognized and loved by many people, which can help more people to join this ideology. For me, gender equality is a very interesting and important issue in the world. It is one of the bases for achieving peace and equity. It is the basis for promoting values.
