The internet saw Emma Watson, a UN Global Goodwill Ambassador, broadcast an important message from the United Nations this week (Saturday the 20th, to be exact). At her HeForShe speech, she called upon men, boys, and society at large to stand up for feminism, a basic human right. Watson’s approach was simple: equality for the sexes does not just benefit one demographic or one group; it benefits everyone. Why should women be demeaned for speaking their mind? Why should men be emasculated by showing their feelings? These Medieval social mores are long overdue for a renaissance, and Watson does a beautiful job at crafting an appeal that does not leave anyone out. If you haven’t yet seen Watson’s speech, take twelve minutes out of your day to watch this budding activist push for a new standard, and check out the HeForShe homepage.
