Why can’t women have rights ánd be seen?

Emma Watson, UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, has recently posed ‘topless’ for vanity fair. We can’t even say it’s topless, since she is just wearing a top without a bra underneath. After posting this photograph, Watson received loads of negative comments.

Beauty and the breasts

‘Beauty and the breasts’. One of the many critics Emma Watson got on her ‘topless’ photo. She hits back saying: “I don’t know what my tits have to do with feminism, it’s about giving women a choice.” I completely agree with her. Feminism is actually about being accepted the way they are. About being as free as men, so why shouldn’t women be free to show off their body? It doesn’t mean that they should hide themselves but that they should be proud of themselves.

Being equal

She also says feminism is about equality. So showing her breasts is actually showing that she is just the way all other females are. She probably didn’t even think about the link between women’s rights and doing a photoshoot where she shows a part of her breasts.

It made me so angry that people said that she is hypocrite and that she can’t be a feminist ánd have boobs. What on earth does she have to do? Getting her boobs removed? It’s just because she is feminine that she cán have boobs.

Emma Watson helped to launch UN women campaign ‘HeForShe’. A solidarity campaign that to engage men to advocate gender equality. It means that women really matter. And so do their bodies.
