Where to buy it


As a famous actor and person of privilege, Emma Watson‘s 2014 speech as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador was a call for equality and justice. In her speech, she implores men and boys to join the fight for gender equality - for their own sake and that of the other half of the world‘s population. Watson shares her own experience discovering feminism at an early age and wanting other young women and men to not shrink from the word or the work required to make a more inclusive world.
