Emma Watson may just be my fave person today and this is why.
The 24 year old young lady who grew up in front of our eyes as Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series has delivered an incredible speech on feminism to the United Nations at the HeforShe campaign at the New York UN Headquarters.
In one part of Emma’s incredible speech she spoke about the word ‘feminism’, saying it had earned a bad reputation. The implication being that anyone who practiced feminism was considered a man-hater. Emma stated that she was a feminist as she believed that women deserved equal pay, the right to have the final say over their own bodies and the right to have other women speaking on their behalf in places of power.
Emma also spoke about men needing equality too. I urge you to take a little time out of your day and watch this young lady articulate what so many of us feel and think. And share it with a man in your life too.
