Taylor Swift Thinks Emma Watson Is The Incredible Feminist We Should All Aspire To Be

PREACH.

Recommended Videos

Emma Watson’s beautiful speech to the UN supporting feminism and the HeForShe campaign was wonderful – so of course a bunch of people had to go ahead and hate her for it. Taylor Swift doesn’t have time for any of your garbage, though, and she wants you to know she’s 100% behind both feminism and Watson. Like, figuratively. You get it.

Swift appeared on CBC Quebec’s Tout le monde en parle (Everybody Talks), where she said she wished she had a feminist icon like Watson to look up to when she was growing up.

“So many girls out there say, ‘I’m not a feminist’ because they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining or they picture, like, rioting and picketing,” said Swift. “It is not that at all. It just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities. To say that you’re not a feminist means that you think men should have more rights and opportunities than women. I just think that a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it I think is an incredible thing and I’m happy to live in a world where that happened.”

Swift also speaks passionately about how much she hates the media’s tendency to pit women against each other in the press, and her own evolution as a feminist. It’s all pretty great. Five points to Hufflepuff (What? T. Swift would definitely be a Hufflepuff).
