Emma Watson: Accio Equality!

You really need to watch Emma Watson’s brilliant and moving speech from the floor of the United Nations, as part of the UN HeForShe campaign, on the importance of feminism and the right of every human, regardless of gender, to become the most complete version of themselves. It’s not science, but it’s more important than anything I could possibly share with you today.

She offers a formal invitation to the men of the world to join in the efforts for worldwide gender equality.

To Emma: Invitation accepted.

Are you with us?



I look up — many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.

That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you.

That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…
