Emma Watson: One Of the Best Role Models For Feminists
Almost everyone has this notion that most, if not all, Hollywood child stars are ticking time bombs waiting to explode anytime. Macaulay Culkin, Amanda Bynes, and Lindsay Lohan are just a few examples of how successful child stars who experienced meltdowns that seemed irreparable. Thus, when people look at the Harry Potter child stars, they are also waiting for that meltdown to happen. But it seems that the Harry Potter cast, especially Emma Watson have proven them wrong. And here are a few more reasons why Hermione Granger was one of the best role models for feminists.
She graduated from an Ivy League university
Emma Watson belonged to these rare breed of child stars who have successfully managed to juggle their career and studies with ease. Despite her busy schedule from different acting and modeling engagements, she graduated from the prestigious Brown University with a bachelor's degree in English literature.
Prior to that, it has been reported that even when she was filming Harry Potter, she had to study with a tutor every day. No wonder she had no time drinking or doing something that would derail her. The result of that hardwork was receiving straight A's in her GCSE in 2006 and A Levels in 2008.
She does not post selfies and take off her clothes
She has never taken off her clothes and post naked selfies on social media just to attract attention. Attention just follow her because of the works she have done. For example, when she was busy filming Harry Potter in 2009, she launched her own clothing line in collaboration with People Tree.
She became a UN Women Goodwill ambassador
This is the most impressive achievements of Emma Watson. In a young age, such trust was already given to her by the organization. She was chosen by the UN to be their Goodwill ambassador focusing on women's right s and girls education all over the world. Her work has brought her face to face with prominent world leaders that led her to making a speech twice in front of them. The first was in 2014 during the campaign launch of HeForShe, which encourages men to take a stand for gender equality. The latest was in September 2016 during the UN's "Together for the 2030 Agenda: Partnering for Women, Children and Adolescents, to Thrive and Transform the World” event in New York.
