Emma Watson delivers a speech in favor of equality at the university (and receives sexist criticism for it)

That Emma Watson is one of the celebrities More committed to the defense of feminism is something we have known for years. His defense of equality, not only in Hollywood but in general, has earned him a goodwill ambassador to the UN. Last week, he gave a speech at the headquarters of the organization in New York in which he addressed a very specific issue: equality in universities and the importance of preventing sexual crimes on campus.

After the Brock Turner scandal, The issue of sexual assaults in American universities is fully current. Emma did not specifically mention this case, but in her words it was clear what we all expect the universities to be:

"We must be clear that the security of women, minorities and anyone who may be vulnerable is a right, not a privilege. A right that must be respected by a community that believes and supports survivors, and recognizes that when the security of a person is violated, we all feel our own security violated. The university should be a refuge, a place that takes action against any form of violence ".

But, oddly enough, the actress's speech has not pleased everyone. The newspaper The sun published a demolishing column against the actress, exposing, precisely, some of the sexist precepts against which the actress fights:

Translation: "Hermione Granger has addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations. No, I'm not kidding. Actress Emma Watson, well, is a" goodwill ambassador "to the United Nations. What is that, when she is at home ? I have no idea. Anyway, instead of explaining to them the rules of quidditch or how to turn someone into a frog, it bored them all with their politically correct, crying and left-wing shit. Just what all actresses do if people are stupid enough to give them a chance. Why do we consent to these celebrities, most of whom don't know anything? I have no problem with them having their own opinions and expressing them. What I don't understand is why we take them seriously. I guess they've had Emma because Angelina Jolie is a bit involved with other things right now. "
