Emma Watson is receiving some backlash over a recent photo shoot, and the validity of her stance on feminism.
The debate is that she isn’t allowed to show off her chest or take a certain style of photos and call herself a feminist. Emma responded to those comments…
“It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is,” she said (via Reuters.)
“Feminism is about giving women choice, feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality… I don’t really know what my tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing. I’m confused. Most people are confused. No, I’m just always just quietly stunned,” she finished.
As for the photo… “The shot itself I was honestly slightly taken aback by because we’d been doing so many crazy things on that shoot but it felt incredibly artistic and I’ve been so creatively involved and engaged with Tim and I’m so thrilled about how interesting and beautiful the photographs were,” Emma said. “But yeah, certainly people have asked and I’ve gone ‘Is there a controversy about this?’”
