Previously, Emma Watson participated in the HeForShe campaign in the UN and often supports feminist and international writers and thinkers. In addition to financial support, the actress participates in other initiatives of Time’s Up – on the red carpet of the Golden Globe and BAFTA she appeared in a black dress. Emma Watson also actively struggles for women’s rights and gender equality, which makes her one of the most famous icons of feminism of our time. “Feminism is not dictate. He does not order, and he is not a dogma. He just defends the right of free choice. If you want to run for the post of prime minister – please, but if you feel comfortable sitting at home and doing housework – that’s fine too. And it’s your choice to shave your armpits or not shave, wear flat soles or wear studs, “notes actress Emma Watson.
The purpose of the Time’s Up campaign is to confront sexual harassment. Its representatives will seek fair punishment for the abusers, a greater presence of women in decision-making positions and higher salaries for them, as well as better coverage of violence in the media and cinema.
