“Anne Hathaway was perfect casting for the role of Maggie,” Barbra Streisand said. “When Anne came into the studio, I was so happy to see her looking radiant and glowing – no makeup, with the beauty of a woman about to give birth to a child.”

‘At the Ballet’ featuring Anne and Daisy Ridley is part of Barbra’s upcoming album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.

Anne Hathaway was appointed a Global Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, the U.N. agency promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women.

UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, who announced the appointment on June 15, 2016, called her a longstanding supporter of women’s and girls’ rights. She said Anne will put the spotlight on women’s work at home caring for their families as a key barrier to equality

Anne will be “working internationally to advance the adoption and implementation of policies that will bring measurable change,” including “affordable childcare services and shared parental leave at both government and corporate levels.”

She previously served as an advocate for the Nike Foundation, which supports programs to empower adolescent girls in the developing world, and traveled to Kenya and Ethiopia to raise awareness on child marriage. In 2013, she narrated the CNN documentary, “Girl Rising,” which focused on the power of female education.
