Emma Watson, the Harry Potter movie star turned feminist activist and UN Ambassador, has now helped launch a telephone hotline that gives females who are victims of abuse at work access to lawyers and advocates trained in combating harassment.
Watson has spoken at the United Nations declaring that her belief is that feminism is nothing more than providing equal rights and opportunities for both men and women. Watson has encouraged men in power to help females that are victimized, but has not demanded any type of handouts or quotas. She donated $1.4 million dollars to the UK Justice and Equality Fund, which is another organization that provides support for who are the victims of harassment or stalking. She walks the walk and talks the talk, unlike some of the fame-hungry, radical leftist American actresses that feign outrage on Twitter for fans, but never provide actionable solutions to the “injustices” they complain about. (ahem, Alyssa Milano)
This is what the launch looked like on Twitter:

Breitbart reported on Watson’s statement about the new hotline:
“It’s completely staggering to think that this is the only service of its type given that research has found that as many as one in two women experience sexual harassment in the workplace,” the 29-year-old actress said in a statement. “It finally feels like people are realizing the scale of the problem and I’m certainly hopeful that with global standards such as the recent International Labour Organization treaty on harassment at work, we’ll start to see a new climate of prevention and accountability on this issue domestically.”
Emma Watson has not played the victim, virtue signaled or used victims to grandstand in the past. She works hard to establish organizations that provide actual services for women who would otherwise not have the ability to protect themselves. Watson has repeatedly said that she just wants equality, not special treatment for women the world. Putting actions behind your words is a lesson that all of us, not just Hollywood, can learn from.
Do you respect Emma Watson more than Alyssa Milano?
