Emma Watson, who in recent years has made raising awareness about feminism a priority in her public life, recently interviewed Geena Davis for “Interview” magazine. Besides being an actress herself, Geena Davis is the founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, an organization that collects statistics about gender representation in children’s media.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, co-stars in the upcoming film “The Circle”, will be featured on the April cover of “Esquire” as a part of their “Women & Men” issue. In this issue, Emma Watson discusses the gender wage gap in Hollywood, her HeForShe campaign, and why feminism should be everyone’s concern.
Hot on the heels of being named one of “Forbes”‘s “30 Under 30” and announcing the launch of a new HeForShe website aimed at grassroots organizing on her Facebook page, Emma Watson and HeForShe have appeared at the 2016 World Economic Conference in Davos, Sweden, to deliver their first-ever Parity Report.
Since Emma Watson launched HeForShe last September, the program has become a global movement fighting for gender equality. Now, as announced on Watson’s Facebook page, HeForShe has a brand new website. The announcement is accompanied by a brief interview with Emma, which highlights that HeForShe is not an awareness campaign, but is mission-focused in its goal of achieving gender equality.
