Feminists around the world are freaking out right now, after the wonderfully self-proclaimed feminist Emma Watson interviewed Malala after the release of her film "He Named Me Malala." Why pair these two ladies together? It's pretty easy to see their similarities even though they have a different background.
Both powerfully delivered speeches at the U.N.
Both are self-proclaimed feminists.
Both ladies are inspired by each other.
When Emma Watson called Mala one of her person heroes during the interview, and then after on her Facebook: "Today I met Malala. She was giving, utterly graceful, compelling and intelligent. That might sound obvious but I was struck by this even more in person."
When Malala returned the compliment “I hesitated in saying [whether I am] a feminist or not,” Yousafzai confessed to Watson. “After hearing your speech, when you said, ‘If not now, when? If not me, who?’ I decided there’s no way, and there’s nothing wrong with calling yourself a feminist. I am a feminist and you’re truly feminist, because feminism is another word for equality.”
When Malala said she's not stopping: "It's my simple dream and very straightforward: I want to see every child get a quality education. In order to make sure that dream comes true, we have to work hard and we have to take action."
