    I am so happy that Emma Watson is using her popularity on a platform like the UN because so many of my peers who wouldn’t care less about feminism or UN programs listened to her entire speech because of Harry Potter. As for the content, I think she did a good job of clarifying the stigma around feminists and explaining why men need to be involved. One of the highlights of her speech was when she brought up her privilege. Although she could have done more to discuss women of color or women from developing nations, I am glad that she mentioned it at all since it is often neglected.
