Since Emma and Rupert are in NYC at this time, they might both want to check out the People's Climate March Sept 21

starts @ 10:30 am in Central Park West between 65th and 86th streets. Also marching will be Cook Organic, Not the Planet 

with Vandana Shiva, an expert Indian activist and anti-globalist.

I truly doubt Rupert would even be interested in anything like that.

I love the speech what she gave on UN 


"I don't want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself."

This is whole Em Speech"

 

"Today, we are launching a campaign called HeForShe. I am reaching out to

you before we need your help. We want to end gender inequality and to do

this, we need everyone involved. This is the first campaign of its kind at the

UN. We want to try to galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be

advocates for change and we don't just want to talk about it. We want to try

and make sure that it's tangible."

"I was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women six months ago

and the more I've spoken about feminism, the more I have realized that

fighting for women's rights has too often become synonymous with manhating.

If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop."

"for the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women

should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political,

economic and social equality of the sexes. I started questioning gender-based

assumptions a long time ago."

"When I was 8, I was confused about being called 'bossy' because I wanted to

direct the plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not.

When at 14, I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media, when

at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams,

because they didn't want to appear 'muscle-y,' when at 18, my males friends

were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist. And this

seems uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that

feminism has become an unpopular word."

"Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, I am among the

ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, 'too aggressive,'

isolating and anti-men, unattractive, even. Why has the word become such an

uncomfortable one?"

"I am from Britain and I think it is right that I am paid the same as my male

counterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about

my own body, I think [applause break] ... I think it is right that women be

involved on my behalf in the policies and the decisions that affect my life. I

think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men."

"But sadly, I can say that there is no one country in the world where all

women can expect to receive these rights. No country in the world can yet say

that they have achieved gender equality. These rights, I consider to be human

rights but I am one of the lucky ones, my life is a sheer privilege because my

parents didn't love me less because I was born a daughter. My school did not

limit me because I was a girl. My mentors didn't assume that I would go less

far because I might give birth to a child one day. These influencers are the

gender equality ambassadors that made me who I am today."

"They may not know it, but they are the inadvertent feminists who are

changing the world today. We need more of those and if you still hate the

word, it is not the word that is important. It's the idea and the ambition behind

it. Because not all women have received the same rights that I have. In fact,

statistically, very few have been."

"In 1997, Hillary Clinton made a famous speech in Beijing about women's

rights. Sadly, many of the things that she wanted to change are still true

today. But what stood out for me the most was that less than 30 percent of the

audience were male. How can we affect change in the world when only half of

it is invited or feel welcome to participate in the conversation?"

"Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal

invitation." [Applause break] "Gender equality is your issue too. Because to

date, I've seen my father's role as a parent being valued les by society despite

my needing his presence, as a child, as much as my mother's. I've seen

young men suffering from mental illness, unable to ask for help, for fear it

would make them less of a men—or less of a man. In fact, in the U.K., suicide

is the biggest killer of men, between 20 to 49, eclipsing road accidents, cancer

and coronary heart disease. I've seen men made fragile and insecure by a

distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don't have the benefits

of equality, either."

"We don't want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but

I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a

natural consequence. If men don't have to be aggressive, women won't be

compelled to be submissive. If men don't need to control, women won't have

to be controlled."

"It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of

opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and

start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what

HeForShe is about. It's about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so

their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so

their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so,

be a more true and complete version of themselves."

"You might think, 'Who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the

U.N.?' And it's a really good question—I've been asking myself at the same

thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make it better.

And having seen what I've seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility

to say something. Statesman Edmund Burke said all that is needed for the

forces of evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing."

"In my nervousness for this speech and my moments of doubt, I've told myself

firmly, 'If not me, who? If not now, when?' If you have similar doubts when

opportunities are presented to you, I hope that those words will be helpful

because the reality is, if we do nothing, it will take 75 years or for me, to be

nearly 100, before women can expect to be paid the same as men for the

same work—15.5 million girls will be married in the next 16 years as children

and at current rates, it won't be until 2086 before all rural African girls can

have a secondary education."

"If you believe in equality, you might be one of those inadvertent feminists that

I spoke of earlier and for this, I applaud you. We are struggling for a uniting

word but the good news is that we have a uniting movement. It is called

HeForShe. I am inviting you to step forward to be seen and to ask yourself, 'If

not me, who? If not now, when?' Thank you very, very much."


"I don't want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself."

LOVED IT loved her, but makes me sick people still do not understand just look on the homepage on the event's photos/speech post's comments to see how boys write about it without understanding it, without understanding what emma was saying. It means they'll raise their boys to continue abuse in all its forms(I was raised in a domestic violence environment so I know it too well). That makes me sad and sick to see, but hopefully they'll GROW UP to be wiser and open their eyes about these matters. Nobody said men don't work hard, yes they do. W/out my dad there wouldn't be electricity in the house working properly. Sorry for the blaber.

I guess neither Emma/Rupert is interested in the planet. Yes, he did write a good speech.

Nono, this was honest. I mean, Luke is a sort of genius. He manages it to sell Emma, a young woman who has never experienced the hardship of beeing a working woman at minimum wages (and no, I do NOT consider her acting as hard work), to sound like somebody who really cares..... On the other hand, she is an actress, so she can deliver these lines in the right tone.... I wonder, how long she will milk Harry Potter for that.....

After all: nice dress, Emma!

Don't you ever get tired of the constant negativity?

 

Emma was appointed ambassador 6 months ago. You don't think in all that time an English lit major couldn't write a speech?

 

No, of course not. Emma doesn't really care about women. This is all a PR stunt. Luke made the UN appoint Emma as ambassador.

 

:rolleyes:
