Emma Watson at UN

Here's English actress Emma Watson looking very smart and businesslike in her role as UN Goodwill Ambassador, launching a new HeForShe campaign for gender equality last Saturday. How can we ever forget her as the bossy young girl in the Harry Potter movies? Apparently that wasn't all acting. She revealed in her speech that being called "bossy" as a girl drew her toward feminism, because it was a put down aimed at girls. They had to know their place and not compete with the boys. The Daily Mail is buzzing with news of her speech (CLICK). For a video CLICK. A joke from Woody Allen sums it up: "In my house I'm the boss, my wife is just the decision maker."
