Emma Watson, guest editor of the March issue of Vogue Australia, on sale February 26, shares her vision and the full shoot by iconic photographer . Now, you can see all the pictures in our gallery.
The UN Women Goodwill Ambassador said: “We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes, but I can see that that they are, and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted, women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.” Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong … It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum, instead of two sets of opposing ideals.
If we stop defining each other by what we are not, and start defining ourselves by what we are, we can all be freer, and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. Watson impressed us even more when she guest-edited Vogue’s March 2018 issue, passionately advocating sustainable fashion and encouraging us all to think more about making the world more ethical, diverse and equal. It came as she joined forces with Hollywood women in the #TimesUp movement, advocating equality and empowerment for women. The girl we knew as Hermoine has grown into an extraordinarily inspiring humanitarian and champion for change.”
