Emma Watson has grown from child actress to an international figure that represents women’s issue on a global scale. Whilst she begun her career from an early age she became a global icon because of the Harry Potter role she played as Hermione Granger. Her film work has been extensive and hasn’t just been Hollywood blockbusters that she has starred in and promoted, with some of her films instead being more independent productions. Some of the films which garnered her the most critical acclaim were her portrayals in the films The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Chbosky, 2012) and Beauty and the Beast (Condon, 2017) where critics applauded her as an actress. Outside of her acting and modelling roles she is known for her support of women’s rights and equality. Emma Watsons activism has ranged from her work at the United Nations as a women’s goodwill ambassador to her founding the HeForShe campaign which aims to encourage people to push for women’s equality. She also helped found the UKs Times up campaign to end sexual harassment for women. Emma is proof that activism on any level can make real substantial change, and she has shown that film icons can use their positions of power to help bring about much needed conversations surrounding women’s inequality and how we can challenge this throughout society.
