“I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that will affect my life.”
This month, we have chosen to celebrate Miss Watson as she turns 27, quite simply because:
1. The actor-activist uses her brand to ensure gender equality (rather than to sell perfume or cookbooks).
2. Emma has held her own in the limelight from a young Hermione, to her current role as Belle.
3. A pioneer of the HeForShe campaign, she is encouraging men to advocate for feminism.
Fun fact: Watson is a certified yoga and meditation instructor.
Namaste, all damn day.
