Emma Watson Talks About Feminism in a New Interview

12 ratings | 1702 views
Emma Watson wants man to start using the word feminism. In this month’s issue of Porter magazine, Emma Watson said in an interview that her celebrated HeForShe gender equality campaign was unsuccessfully censored. The actress explained the internal backlash: “I was encouraged not to use the word ‘feminism’ because people felt that it was alienating and separating and the whole idea of the speech was to include as many people as possible...But I thought long and hard and ultimately felt that it was just the right thing to do. If women are terrified to use the word, how on earth are men supposed to start using it?” The divisive speech she’s referencing was the clickbait heard ‘round the Internet. Lady assemblages, from book club email chains to Facebook groups to friend group texts, were smitten with the actress more commonly known as Hermione Granger—fictional supergirl turned IRL feminist hero. To give credit where credit is due, Watson’s speech was articulate, well-informed, and well-intentioned. She addressed men directly, saying, “I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too.” Then, she further explained how outdated gender roles punish both men and women. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/thedailybeast/articles/~3/xcjFgu4v61M/emma-watson-s-very-bold-very-flawed-heforshe-feminism-campaign.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com

Assuming feminism is this wonderful equality movement, why do you think it is, oh purveyor of feminist propaganda, that man haters gravitate to feminism?

Definitely not it absolutely comes from Ur mind if u want to change the world by creating gender equality then it's Ur broad thinking. Actually u know what it depends person to person that what they actually think about it.If u take a step forward u will see there will hundreds and thousands of people supporting it. So it doesn't make any sense that once Muslims takeover everything will change it depends upon u that what u think or what are ur perceptions about it , because we badly need gender equality it's really a very serious issue and everyone should talk about it and take a step forward to it.And specially men and boys should talk about it and take action about it why do u guys consider ur self or portray ur self towards the society that ur a dangerous minority, that doesn't make any sense. We all r human being and we all have some basic human rights and it's women's right too to live free like u boys do . It's really pathetic to see that women need to just announce it through different media about this issue but why through media? Don't we have some sense that women are human being too they also have that same right that a men do, it should come from our inner/moral sense that no! definitely we should make sure about women's right in a society because women are playing a very significant role towards our country, culture and also society. And most importantly we all are human being.
