Emma Watson gives an empowering and inspiring speech about gender roles in society at the launch of the #HeForShe campaign at the United Nations on Saturday (September 20) in New York City.
The 24-year-old actress and activist stood in front of a packed crowd and spoke to webstreams across the country about the issues to “mobilize men against gender inequalities.”
“When I was 8, I was confused about being called ‘bossy’ because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not. When at 14, I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media, when at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams, because they didn’t want to appear ‘muscle-y,’ when at 18, my males friends were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist,” Emma told the attendees at the summit. “And this seems uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word.”
