Emma Watson HeForShe Speech at the United Nations | UN Women 2014
For the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
And if you still hate the word, it is not the word that is important. It’s the idea and ambition behind it.
How can we affect change in the world when only half of it is invited or feels welcome to participate in the conversation? Men, I would take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too.
Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom.

For every one roach you find in your apartment there are about fifty others hidden somewhere behind it. Welcome to New York City!
