United Nations: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is calling himself "a proud feminist" and says all men should support women's rights and gender equality.
His announcement was loudly applauded at Tuesday's opening of the annual two-week meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women, a UN body that Guterres called "vital to end the stereotypes and discrimination that limit women's and girls' opportunities."
He said changing "the unequal power dynamics" that underpin discrimination and violence against women is "the greatest human rights challenge of our time." He called that a goal "in everyone's interests."
In Guterres' word: "Discrimination against women damages communities, organisations, companies, economies and societies. That is why all men should support women's rights and gender equality. And that is why I consider myself a proud feminist."
