Gender equality has been an ongoing issue throughout many years. Women have been experiencing inequal treatment in the world’s societies in many aspects of life.

To this day today, women are being denied equal pay in the corporate world, looked at as less worthy in certain parts of the world, and have been continuously discriminated.

In this speech by Emma Watson, there is a focus on gender equality, how the idea behind feminism has been misinterpreted, and how unhealthy gender norms are affecting men and women.

By referring to these negative experiences during her younger years, she reflects the current young girl and what they might go through.

She appeals to the listener’s emotions by giving details on the discrimination and inequality that young girls face.

Emma Watson hereby highlights some major problems that women face in society through a powerful statement “I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts.

I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decision-making of my country.

I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men” . The problems that women face are many, and Emma Watson makes it clear that women deserve everything that they are being denied and robbed of. Whether it be economically, politically, or socially.
