President Michael D. Higgins is today hosting an event to promote women's rights and equality.

The UN Women HeForShe event celebrates the powerful role of men in promoting and supporting equality for women.

This morning's event is also supported by SAFE Ireland, the national organisation of domestic violence services, to highlight their MAN UP campaign.

The event will also feature a performance by Hozier of his new single Cherry Wine.
