Emma Watson held a speech at the UN Headquarters in New York on the 20. September 2014. Emma Watson is of course known as Hermione from Harry Potter, but the speech is not about wizards and magical spells.
It is about an issue that is present in every corner on this planet, inequality. She is therefore launching a campaign called “HeForShe”.
Of course, she also believes that other women shouldn’t have to feel like her, be looked down upon, just because they are not male.
She gave the speech at the UN Headquarters in New York. This leads me to believe that the audience is full of intelligent and influential people.
I am also certain that some of these people could be quite influential and powerful. This would mean, that if she won over just three or four people with her speech, it could lead to a lot of changes in the near future.
