Emma Watson spent the last week traveling to Uruguay to encourage women to participate in politics and speaking out in favor of woman’s rights around the world at the HeForShe event at the U.N. Summit.
Why She Is Awesome:
In addition to speaking out for women, Watson also supports some amazing causes, among them the Great Ormand Street Hospital, most famous for it’s association with Peter Pan and Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie. She also supports Sense, ShelterBox and, relevant to her activities this week, UNIFEM.
