Actress Emma Watson has been named feminist of the year in a new poll. The ‘Harry Potter’ star became a women’s rights heroine following a heartfelt sexual equality speech she made at the launch of the #HeForShe campaign at the United Nations in September, reported Contactmusic.
The 24-year-old actress rallied feminists all over the world with her stirring commentary on rights and equal pay, and her celebrity fans were quick to applaud her for her well-presented argument. Now she has been rewarded with the top spot on the fashion website’s top ladies list, compiled by ForWomen.org.
Watson has beaten out transgender actress Laverne Cox, US newswoman Rachel Maddow, Beyonce and Cher.
