Smartypants witch, U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador and all-around badass Emma Watson is at it again. The actress covers the U.K. edition of Elle this month for their Feminism Issue, and the mag gave us a preview of what's sure to be a profile full of gems.
Watson reveals that she was nervous before her instant classic first speech before the U.N., and reveals the roots of her feminism. Parents, hot tip: if you want to have any hope of your daughter turning out like Watson, hear her out as a youngster.
"Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It’s not prescriptive, it’s not dogmatic," Watson said. "All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for President, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too."
"I’m lucky I was raised to believe that my opinion at the dinner table was valuable. My mum and I spoke as loudly as my brothers."
Point taken. Speak up, girls!
