Emma Watson Inspires Fans Again With a New #HeForShe Speech

Emma Watson delivers yet another inspiring speech concerning feminism and her #HeForShe Campaign during the 2015 World Economic Forum on Friday morning (January 23) in Davos, Switzerland.

“Since HeForShe launched in New York last September, I think it would be fair to say that my colleagues and I have been stunned by the response,” the 24-year-old actress and activist said to kick off her speech.

Emma continued, saying: “The HeForShe conference was watched over 11 million times, sparking 1.2 billion social media conversations, culminating in the #HeForShre hashtag becoming so popular that Twitter painted it on the walls of its headquarters. And men from almost every country in the world signed up to our commitment. Everyone, from Desmond Tutu to Prince Harry to Hillary Clinton to Yoko Ono have issued their support or contacted us since Sept. 20. Everything from marathons being run, merchandise being created, 15-year-old boys writing to national newspapers deploring female discrimination, young girls collecting hundreds of signatures—it’s all happened in the last four months. I couldn’t have dreamed it, but it’s happened. Thank you so much.”
