You know her as the belovedly bossy Hermoine and, recently, the caring heroine, Belle, in “Beauty and the Beast”. However, Emma Watson is more than just an actress. She is an activist, feminist, and a role model.

  She has starred in many movies since the end of Harry Potter, graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s in English literature, and was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador in 2014.

  In a speech to launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, which promotes men to support gender equality, Watson struck down the notion that feminism is man-hating in favor of the truth being “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities”.

  Watson placed number 26 on the TIME 100 list of the world’s most influential people in 2015 and started the feminist Goodreads book club, “Our Shared Shelf”. Recently, she was accused of hypocrisy for a slightly risque Vanity Fair photoshoot and responded that feminism should not be used against other women, but is about freedom, liberation and equality.

  Emma Watson has accomplished much in the past few years with her activism and dedication to helping women around the world. She made young girls proud to have brains and bravery as Hermoine and has not stopped inspiring since.
