"“You might think, ‘Who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the U. N.?’ And it’s a really good question — I’ve been asking myself the same thing."

Not to be cruel but, yes, it’s an excellent question. Why is Emma Watson delivering a speech on feminism at the U.N.? Why Emma Watson and not a feminist writer or activist? Why are celebrity women being positioned as representatives of feminism and feminists? Could it be because nobody wants to hear from actual feminists with an actual feminist agenda (too uncomfortable and scary and challenging)? Could it be because the popularisation of feminism = the depoliticisation of feminism = not feminism at all?
