Emma Watson Joins UN to Advocate for Women Around the World

Emma Watson Joins UN to Advocate for Women Around the World

Emma Watson keeps it totally chic in a professional look while joining the United Nations for the HeForShe campaign launch on Saturday (September 20) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actress was recently made a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she made a trip to Uruguay earlier this week to highlight the need for women to participate in political elections. The country just set a quota for the first time guaranteeing that women represent 30% of political positions.

“Women must have a say in matters that affect their countries, communities and families. After all, they are half of the population, so women’s equal participation in decision-making is a question of justice and democracy,” Emma said during her visit (via UN.org).

FYI: Emma is wearing a Dior heather grey silk coat dress and metal belt.

    I love Watson’s speech about men having inequality too:

    “I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man …. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are.”

    I have loads of respect for Emma and the HeforShe campaign after watching the event.
