It’s been about a year since she founded the gender equality movement #HeforShe and Emma Watson is still talking about sexism and its impact on women’s daily lives. In a new video, Emma speaks out about issues within the fashion industry, inviting several famous designers to share their thoughts on the topic as well.
During the video, Watson discusses her thoughts on gender equality and asks questions to heavy fashion moguls from Jonathan Saunders to Stella McCartney on what they believe are the biggest struggles in the fashion world that are faced by women today.
Watson also calls out the fashion world and asks fashion icons point blank if they are a feminist. Watch the video to see how the stunning and poise Watson grew into a young lady who’s on a mission to make a change and bring justice for all in fashion.
“I want to get this conversation, this dialogue happening specifically within the fashion industry to ask the leading voices about gender equality,” Emma says in the video.
Stella McCartney is one of several designers and fashion insiders featured in the short film. “I think the fashion industry has a very big role to play,” McCartney says. “It has a huge voice and the voice can be adapted. We need to give a better message to women of all ages, all sizes, and all nationalities. We need to allow women to feel comfortable in who they are.”
“I think it’s really improving,” Emma says of the industry. “I’ve seen some very positive steps towards equality in the industry. I think there’s a lot of racism, I think there’s a lot of sexism. I’d really, really love to see a more diverse representation of women and men in any way that makes them feel empowered.”
