Emma Watson is a champion of equality. We’re so excited to see her in Beauty & The Beast next year, but for now, she’s proving one again that she’s the coolest Career Girl we know.
During her latest visit to the U.N headquarter in New York, Emma gave a speech that focused solely on two issues many women know all too well. Campus assault and inequality in the university system.
Emma talked about her own experiences at Brown University. She questioned whether other universities empower women the way hers did. “What if our experience in university shows us that women don’t belong in leadership? What if it shows us that, yes, women can study, but they shouldn’t lead a seminar?” she said. “What if, as is the case in far too many universities, we are given the message the sexual violence isn’t actually a form of violence?”
“The university experience must make it clear that the safety of women, minorities, and anyone who may be vulnerable, is a right and not a privilege,” She said. “A right that will be respected by a community that supports and respects survivors, and recognizes that when one person’s safety is violated, the safety of everyone should feel violated.”
