Emma Watson is a damn fine actress. See “The Bling Ring” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” — she seems perfectly comfortable with the generic American accent, and her acting is sharp. She’s the next Cate Blanchett. But that’s not why everyone should follow her on Twitter.
Everyone should follow Emma Watson on Twitter because she may be humanity’s brightest beacon of positive change for gender equality. Did you know she’s the Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women? That’s a hell of an accomplishment for someone so young.
My favorite is this response to someone asking what to do against internalized sexism:
Become aware of it.
It’s so perfect, so profound. And she’s full of these. It’s like if Mae West, Eleanor Roosevelt and Oscar Wilde had a joint Twitter account.
She also uses Twitter to point out great books to read, post pictures of interesting men holding signs that say “#HeForShe” and basically make the universe a better place through confidence, positivity, patience and a David Bowie-esque je-ne-sais-quoi.
