I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about Emma Watson’s incredible speech on gender equality that she gave at the UN Headquarters in New York last week. If not, what boulder have you been living under?
During the speech, Emma launched the #HeForShe campaign, which aims to fight for gender equality around the globe.
While the media were quick to champion the powerful speech, they were just as quick to belittle it, criticising Emma’s every word which are words the world desperately needs to hear.
“Men – I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too.”
Many male celebs were quick to stand up and support Emma, check out our faves below.
Let’s kick it off with the ever-brilliant Harry Styles. (This also may be my current phone background because Harry + Feminism = #secretfangirl).
