Emily Ratajkowski Says Emma Watson Helped Shape Her Idea of Feminism

Emily Ratajkowski has Emma Watson to thank for helping guide her ideas of sexuality and feminism.

The 26-year-old model showed off her killer abs in a velvet green suit while out and about on Monday (July 3) in London, England.

“To start saying that certain people need to have a license to be feminist is insane,” Emily told Glamour UK. “Emma Watson said feminism isn’t some kind of tool to beat other women with, it’s supposed to be a freedom of choice.”

“I believe in sexuality,” Emily went on. “I think it’s a wonderful thing and, if anything, I want women to understand their own sexuality outside of a patriarchal male gaze. We’re the core of sexual beings, and I think that’s something that should be celebrated rather than attacked.”

“You really have to prove yourself in this industry, and I’m very much up for the challenge,” she added. “It takes a really long time to not only prove yourself, but also prove that you’re more dynamic than just this one part of you that they see.”

FYI: Emily is wearing a Jennifer Meyer necklace.

    Feminism is about gender equality and about giving women choice. Emily wants to show skin. THAT’S her choice. so shut up you c*nt

    when did a woman being comfortable in her sexuality, and feeling confident have to equal being naked all the time?? empowerment does not equal nudity.

    Fighting fantasy is more or less tagged with feminism and Women’s lib. If it’s a hormonal fantasy, it’d probably be part of their femininity.

  • FreedomFirst

    Actually she is the perfect em-BODY-ment of feminism. She plays her Sex’s superior sex card for glory and greenery and then whines about not being taken seriously for roles that demands real talent. To add insult to self-imposed injury she goes to Emma Watson rather than say Karen Straughan to do her thinking for her.

  • WTF

    «patriarchal male gaze» another women becoming crazy and inventing imaginary world..

  • Nadian Plus Forte

    Emily is an ordinary, boring girl without any real talent besides being good looking. That’s the reason she calls herself a feminist because she wants attention.
