Emma Watson has a lot to say when it comes to the U.S. presidential election.
The 26-year-old English actress, who also serves as the UN Women’s Global Goodwill Ambassador, took to Twitter to air her thoughts.
“America is my second home,” Emma wrote. “I have friends there that I think of as family. It has been excruciating to sit on the sidelines in the months leading up to this election. Goodness, I wish I could cast a vote.”
She quoted political scientist Valerie Hudson, “We know one of the most reliable indicators of peace and prosperity, nationally and globally, is not a country’s level of wealth, democracy, or ethno-religious identity; but how well its women and girls are treated.”
Emma ended her note with, “You have real power to decide the future of generations to come.”
The general election will take place on November 8. Read her full post below.
