Do you know who Hermione is? She’s one Harry Potter‘s pals. We’ve watched her grow up.

And even if you don’t know Hermione Granger is, you want to pay attention to a woman named Emma Watson, film star, graduate of Rhode Island’s Brown University.

But most importantly right now… Emma-Hermione-Watson is the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. And just a few days ago, Hermione  Emma announced the HeForShe Campaign at the UN.

Watch it on YouTube. If you work in the social justice movement, make all your staff and board members watch it. Talk about what it means. It’s time to use the word “feminism” without silly comments and denials and …

Watch Emma. Speak out.

And by the way… Emma refers to Hillary Clinton’s famous speech to the UN’s Fourth Women’s Conference. Beijing, 1995.

Women’s rights are human rights. When will we win the war? And always remember…There are men who are true feminists. And there are very definitely women who are not feminists… even though some of them think they are.
