#HeForShe campaign Launch on September 20th 2014
UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson launches the ‘HeForShe’ campaign, talking about her experience and views on feminism and equality.
The more I have spoken about feminism, the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.
So let me tell you about this band— I grew up listening to the Eagles. When I was a baby, my dad would always get me to stop crying by driving me around in his old mustang and playing Witchy Woman on repeat. Or he would rock me in our old recliner as he played Desperado. I was such a flower child, I swear. But to this day whenever I am feeling stressed out or sad, I listen to Tequila Sunrise or Hotel California and I’m immediately put at ease. These guys have seriously helped me out in my worst moments.
