Emma Watson just gave a remarkable speech on feminism to the United Nations. And for the fellas, before you decide to laugh and move on to the next post on this site, you really should watch this speech. Why, you ask? Because this video and concept involves you too (so keep reading). It involves everyone regardless of gender. If you’ve ever had your sexuality questioned or ever been “less manly” or “less of a man” or even “too manly,” then this undoubtedly affects you too. In the pursuit of gender equality, it affects everyone.
Watson states, “For the record, Feminism, by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.” She continues to tell more about her personal stories. She continues with a line that applies to many men, “when at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings.”
Emma Watson goes on to mention a famous speech that Hilary Clinton made in 1997 in Beijing about Women’s rights. With such an eloquent and thought-provoking speech, Emma Watson’s UN Speech will also go down in the history books as a famous world-changing speech in the near future. She even quoted Edmund Burke’s, “all that is needed for the forces of evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing.” Watson also introduced her new campaign, He For She, in which she invites all men to step forward and take action. She then asks everyone to ask themselves, “If not me, who? If not now, when?”
