Feminism is a really important issue in this century, because we, women, have had enough of not being given the same rights, of not being treated equally or given the same opportunities men have, to be frowned upon when acting like a normal human being, and many celebrities have started to support and raise awareness of the issue, among which are Beyonce, Sophia Bush, and Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, but one of the most important is Emma Watson.
Emma Watson, who everyone knows as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, is one of the celebrities that have raised the bar so high that her character, the brightest witch of her age, would be so proud of. She didn’t just lay back and enjoyed her fame, she went to university and graduated from Brown, and had to listen to countless jokes as she attended classes, and even try to get there between filming for the last movie of the Harry Potter series.
And now she’s part of the UN campaign, HeForShe, where she constantly tries to raise awareness of the important steps we’ve taken in the last one hundred years, but also to see that there is more to come.
This could also be seen in the last video she shared on her Twitter account, where she speaks over a video of women competing in the Women’s Olympic Finals in 1964 in Tokyo, with Sia‘s “Chandelier” as the background song.
The video is a very important statement to show that there is more to achieve, and just for the record, this doesn’t make it as a race against men, but with men, in the goal of achieving gender equality.
