The same day as the live-tweet marathon, Watson gave an impassioned speech at the World Economic Forum introducing the #HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 program.

"Since HeForShe launched in New York last September, I think it would be fair to say that my colleagues and I have been stunned by the response," she said. "The HeForShe conference was watched over 11 million times, sparking 1.2 billion social media conversations, culminating in the #HeForShe hashtag becoming so popular that Twitter painted it on the walls of its headquarters. And men from almost every country in the world signed up to our commitment. Everyone — from Desmond Tutu to Prince Harry to Hillary Clinton to Yoko Ono — [has] issued their support or contacted us since Sept. 20. Everything from marathons being run, merchandise being created, 15-year-old boys writing to national newspapers deploring female discrimination, young girls collecting hundreds of signatures — it's all happened in the last four months. I couldn't have dreamed it, but it's happened."
