    Emma Watson Speaks About Feminism at the UN


    Emma Watson tackled gender politics and feminism in a powerful speech at a United Nations meeting in New York over the weekend.

    The "Harry Potter" actress, 24, who was named a UN Women Goodwill
    Ambassador earlier this year, introduced her latest platform to the
    audience of delegates and representatives in an impassioned speech
    describing how she came to identify as a feminist.

    "Why has the word become such an unpopular one?" Watson said, of feminism.

    "I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I
    think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I
    think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies
    and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I
    am afforded the same respect as men."

    She's so pretty - and the voice is hot as hell.

    It would be so hot to hear her say, 'Pull out and cover my tits'.

    Oh... this is a speech about feminism? Never mind.

    I think it is right that since Daniel Ratcliffe got his wang out on stage, you have to at minimum get your tits out on film.

    Who does she address as "Your Excellency"? How long will it be before we all have to fall down and worship a UN king?

    I'm sure all her talking really hit home with many of the representatives from South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

    But, it's the UN, so it's complain about America for the next two weeks during the general assembly in New York.
