Emma Watson has also become one of the faces of the “He For She” UN campaign, to break down the gender differences and violence against women. In September of 2014 she spoke at the United Nations headquarters in New York to launch this campaign.

Here's the video of the speech


(transcript of the speech


“I was appointed six months ago and the more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.
For the record, feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.”

Recently, Emma Watson visited Malawi to shine a global spotlight on the need to end child marriage. Emma met with Senior Chief Kachindamoto a prominent champion in the fight to stop child marriage. She also met with girls who have returned to school after having their marriages annulled.
