Emma Watson: from child star to feminist

 The Big Issue Australia 23 March 2019

“You know, I feel like young girls are told that they have to be this kind of princess and be all delicate and fragile, and it’s bullshit." Emma Watson first got noticed as the feisty Hermione in the Harry Potter movies. Now almost 25, she has become an influential woman speaking at top-level international forums. Katherine Smyrk takes a look at Watson's journey from child star to feminist and UN Women's Ambassador, and explains why she identifies and admires the British actress. (1971 Words) - By Katherine Smyrk
