UN Women, the new name for UNIFEM, was launched last night, and a press conference was held at the UN for the launch. Unfortunately Nicole was unable to be there in person as she is in San Francisco to film Hemingway & Gelhorn, but she appeared in a live video message … which was unfortunately prematurely cut out due to a technical fault!
Nicole posted about it on her official website:
I’m very honored to be the Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, the new organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women, and I’m thrilled to invite you to be part of their special launch event featuring many distinguished speakers and performers.
You can find more coverage from the launch at their official website here, and below is the full webcast from the event. I haven’t watched the whole thing yet, so can’t tell you when Nic appears! Make sure you check out the official links for the organisation below too.
