Woman Wednesday – Emma Watson

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.

Great Ormond Street Hospital is a hospital that treats children with rare and sometimes life-threatening conditions.

Sense is an organization in the U.K. that helps children and adults that are both deaf and blind.

ShelterBox is an organization that helps victims of disasters, both natural and man-made, recover through assistance in the form of necessary items such as blankets, tents, water purification systems and cooking equipment.

UNIFEM, or the United Nations Development Fund for Women (it’s not an acronym) is a branch of the U.N. that works to improve gender equality and women’s empowerment throughout the world. This covers a wide range of issues ranging from women’s rights in countries where they are oppressed to the discrimination of women in film.
