Emma Watson Inspires Fans Again With a New #HeForShe Speech

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.”

    Emma is lovely. So nice to see a celebrity using fame for good.

  • James D.

    It’s all good but does she help otherwise except speaking about inequalities.

  • Gabrielle

    I love this woman. I have the utmost respect and adoration for her. Its so crazy that she is the same little 10 year old girl I first saw on the big screen back in 2001.

    Speaking about it and bringing this issue to the attention of millions of people IS helping. Social media is pretty much the number one form of communication these days. People don’t watch actual TV as much because of Netflix, Redbox, etc. Texts and calls are easy to ignore. THIS is the way to do it. She and the others involved in the campaign are doing a brilliant job addressing this problem.
