Emma Watson: Accio Equality!

You really need to watch Emma Watson’s brilliant and moving speech from the floor of the United Nations, as part of the UN HeForShe campaign, on the importance of feminism and the right of every human, regardless of gender, to become the most complete version of themselves. It’s not science, but it’s more important than anything I could possibly share with you today.

She offers a formal invitation to the men of the world to join in the efforts for worldwide gender equality.

To Emma: Invitation accepted.

Are you with us?

“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realize that I’ve been taking afeminist stance without actually saying so.”

A lot of people say that third wave feminism is too fragmented, that modern women’s rights campaigns just won’t work because there’s too many voices and no unified approach.

But isn’t that the idea? How would a single approach account for the experience of billions of people? There is no one way to be woman, and therefore no one way to advocate for them.

Food for thought.
