Celebrities Fighting for Equality by Supporting HeForShe

0

With so many international problems arising, actress Emma Watson has restored a little bit of hope. U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador Watson made a big move for the equality HeForShe campaign. In her short but intense speech Watson makes a very bold point on the social interpretation of the word feminism, "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.” Watson is now formally inviting men and women to promote gender equality in only positive lights. In the workplace, social interactions, and simple daily activities. From fathers, brothers, and friends she is asking everyone to help create a world where being male or female is never looked down upon for not meeting stereotypical expectations. Since her speech she has been attacked for what she is standing up for, others have also chosen to stand up with her. Celebrities like Russell Crowe, Emile Herisch, Logan Lerman, and others have all shown their support through social media. Harry Styles from One Direction tweeted a photo stating his support, “I’m supporting @UN_Women and @EmWatson in #HeForShe As should you..”  Actor Tom Hiddleston  tweeted a photo of his support saying, “@EmWatson you are impeccable & extraordinary. I stand with you. I believe in gender equality. #heforshe.” Joseph Gordon-Levitt also posted a video about feminism to show his support for the movement, “Join the conversations #feminism for our TV show. I consider myself a Feminist – what about you WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsEzgu7l4NI.”  So now it’s time to educate society on the real meaning of the word feminism and to take inspiration to make the world a equal and safe place to live.
