Emma Watson: If not me, who. If not now, when.

I'm a feminist.*

I don't hate men and I don't want to receive better treatment than men, but I would like my daughters to be given the same opportunities, treatment and rewards as everyone else and for their rewards to be based on merit rather than gender.

I just don't understand why anyone, man or woman, would be against fairness and choice, which is pretty much what feminism boils down to. 

But don't listen to me, listen instead to the eloquent and talented Emma Watson who explained it all beautifully in this game-changing speech to the UN earlier this week.

*If you got past the first sentence, thanks for reading.

Are you a feminist?
