Feminist Taylor Swift Praises Emma Watson On UN Speech

Taylor Swift has nothing, but wonderful things to say about Emma Watson‘s recent UN speech on feminism and gender inequality!

“I wish when I was 12 years old, I had been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful poignant way the definition of feminism,” the 24-year-old singer shared during an appearance on French Canadian television show Tout le Monde en Parle on Sunday (September 28). “Because I would have understood it and then earlier on in my life I would have proudly claimed that I was a feminist.”

Taylor added, “I just think that a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it, I think it’s an incredible thing and I am happy to live in a world where that happened.” Watch the video below!

Emma Watson Gives a Powerful Speech About Gender Equality - Watch the Video & Read Full Transcript Here

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.”

The passionate speech, which is over 10 minutes long, is so powerful in its message – you must watch below.

Emma Watson: Gender Equality is a Men's Issue Too

Emma Watson clutches her purse while taking photos at the UN Women’s HeForShe VIP After Party held at The Peninsula Hotel on Saturday evening (September 20) in New York City.

Earlier in the day, the 24-year-old actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador donned a totally different look while helping to launch the campaign.

“How can we effect change in the world when only half of it is invited to participate in the conversation?” Emma said during the event. “Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too.”

Emma continued, “I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man …. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are.”

FYI: Emma is wearing a Hugo Boss dress, Roger Vivier shoes, an m2malletier bag, and Jennifer Fisher, Halleh, and Monica Vinade jewels.

Emma Watson Inspires Us by Advocating for Women via the UN

Emma Watson looks gorgeous in a business chic outfit while attending the launch of the HeForShe campaign at the United Nations on Saturday (September 20) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actress was recently made a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she made a trip to Uruguay earlier this week to highlight the need for women to participate in political elections. The country just set a quota for the first time guaranteeing that women represent 30% of political positions.

“Women must have a say in matters that affect their countries, communities and families. After all, they are half of the population, so women’s equal participation in decision-making is a question of justice and democracy,” Emma said during her visit (via UN.org).

FYI: Emma is wearing a Dior heather grey silk coat dress and metal belt with Eva Fehren jewelry.

“I didn’t think anyone else could have played this role,” Emma told the U.K.’s Express. “It needed an actor that you believed physically would be able to build something of the magnitude of the ark.”

She continued, “He was someone who could be both a warrior and also have a sort of complicated internal walls. He just felt very believable to me, he pulled off something that would be very difficult.”
