Actress Emma Watson has gave a speech at the World Economic Forum this morning on the gender equality.
This is Emma Watson’s second speech addressing the UN delegates after she was named the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. She was there to talk about the HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 Initiative.
Emma Watson said –
I spoke about some of my story in September – what are your stories?
Girls: Who have been your mentors, parents, did you make sure you treated your children equally? If so, how have you done it? Husbands: Have you been supporting your female partner privately so that she can fulfill her dreams too? Young men: Have you spoke up in a conversation when a woman was casually degraded or dismissed? …
Businessmen: Have you mentored, supported or engaged women in leadership positions? Writers: Have you challenged the language and imagery used to portray women in the media? CEOs: Have you implemented the women’s empowerment principles in your own company?
Emma spoke about the success of the HeForShe campaign that she launched 4 months back and how we can move forward in empowering women by everyday people.
