I loved this exchange from the dailymail
Adam, London, United Kingdom, 2 hours ago: Funny how the thousands of women working in the frontline with women in refugee camps, war zones and disaster relief centres never get appointed “Goodwill Ambassadors”. Instead, let us appoint some famous pretty actress! Pathetic.
TheFoolOnTheHill, Darlington, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago: People ‘Follow’ the column-inches-carrying pretty actress on their twittlers… thus granting wider exposure, understanding and appreciation of the incredible work that those ‘thousands of women’ are doing. Don’t for one tiny second think that they are not permanent fixtures in the hearts and minds of many.
Adam, London, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago: @TheFoolOnTheHill. Please stop making excuses for the UN. The media and the UN should report on the true heroines at the frontline working with women in war zones instead of appointing celebrities because they have a vacuous group of admirers that “Follow” them.
Adam has a full working brain. This venture for La Watson serves two fronts. The first it gives her attention. It keeps her relevant. It’s not like her acting career is taking off. The second is it’s more idealistic BS that gets her praise. all her fans will care about is how worldly and caring she seems. Anyone else is not going to bother to notice. We all have our own lives and struggles we’re dealing with of which none are predominantly gender related if you live in the 1st world.
Don’t you think someone like Malala would be more effective? Doesn’t she capture the true meaning for Heforshe instead of some white girl born into the middle class and later became a wealthy actress?
