“Today we are launching campaign called HerForShe.
I am reaching out to you because we need your help. We want to end gender inequality—and to do this we need everyone to be involved.
This is the first campaign that kind at the UN: we want to try and galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality. And we don’t just want to talk about it. We want to try and make sure it is tangible.
I was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassodor for UN 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 man-hating. 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 eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being 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 “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.
I decided that I was a feminist and this seemed 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, anti-men, unattractive even.
Why has the word become such an uncomfortable one?
I am from Britain and I think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my malecounterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that will 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 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 I would go less far because I might give birth to a child one day. These influencers were 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. And 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, Hilary Clinton made a famous speech in Beijing about women’s rights. Sadly many of the things she wanted to change are still true today.
But what stood out for me the most was that less than 30 per cent 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. Gender equality is your issue too.
Because to date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society despite my needing his presence as a child as much as my mother’s.
I’ve seen young mensuffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less of a man. In fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49 years; 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 often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are. And 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 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 that their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human too—reclaim those parts of themselves they abandoned and in doing so be a more true and complete version of themselves.
You might be thinking who is this Harry Potter girl? And what is she doing speaking at the UN? It’s a really good question. I have been asking myself 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 it is my responsibility to say something. Statesman Edmund Burke said: “All that is needed for the forces of evil to triumph is for enough good men and women to do nothing.”
In my nervousness for this speech and in 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 those words might be helpful.
Because the reality is that if we do nothing it will take 75 years, or for me to be nearly a hundred 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’ve spoken of earlier.
And for this I applaud you.
We are struggling for a uniting word but the good news is 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?
Речь Эммы Уотсон имела колоссальный успех. К движению #HeForShe присоединились мужчины со всего мира, в том числе и знаменитости.
И вы тоже можете присоединиться, если еще не сделали этого, на сайте heforshe.org (если вы – мужчина и верите в то, что и мужчины и женщины заслуживают равных человеческих прав в экономике, политике, бизнесе, обществе):
На мировом экономическом форуме 2015 года, она вновь обратилась к аудитории с призывами…
Ex2. Watch the episode and find answers for the following questions:
How much time was the HeForShe conference watched?
How much media conversations were devoted to HeForShe?
Why did Twitter paint HeForShe tag on its walls?
What is impact 10x10x10 ?
What does Emma want to hear from girls? Parents? Husbands? Young men? Writers? Businessmen?
What your HeFor She commitment will be?
Why has campaign HeForShe become so popular?
Over 11 mln times
Because tag #HeForShe has become worldwide popular
It’s about engaging governments, businesses and universities and having them make concrete commitments to gender equality. It’s about visability of the changes and the measurability of the commitements.
Girls: Who have been your mentors? Parents: Did you make sure you treated ytour children equally? If so, how have you done it? Husbands: Have you been supporting your female partner privately so that she could fulfill her dreams too? Young Men: Have you spoken up in a conversation when a woman was casually degraded or dismissed? How does it affect you? How does it affect the woman you stand up for? BusinessMen: Have you mentored, supported or engaged women in leadership positions? Writers: Have you challenged the language and imagery you used to portray women in the media?
It’s personal. Everything is valid. Decide what your commitement is. Make it public. And then please report back to the program so that they can share your story.
From Emma’s point of view, it’s not because of her incredible writing speech skills, but because the ground is fertile. There’s greater understanding than ever that women should be equal participants in our homes, in our society, in our governments.
8 Марта 2015 года Эмма Уотсон дала интервью для Facebook. Оно длилось час, где она отвечала на вопросы фанатов и подписчиков.
Ex 3. Watch the video and write whether the following statements are True/False or Not Given:
The movement for gender equality was originally conceived as a struggle led only by women for women.
The Impact of gender inequality and how it affects men hasn’t been addressed before HeForShe campaign.
After her speech Emma felt as if she wanted to live forever and see equality of women ad men.
The Pope was against her campaign as women should be submissive according to Christianity.
The harshest moments of critisism that Emma Watson had ever had in her life were from men that’s why she decided to launch HeForShe campaign.
People didn’t like to use the word feminism because they associated it with hate.
Men think that feminist is only about women, but Emma remarks that if you believe in equality then you are a feminist.
Emma’s mom inspired her greatly and told her that she was the most beautiful girl in the world.
Women and girls do not choose Mathematics and Science and Engineeering and to study because they are afraid that they will appear less attractive as those subjects are considered to be only for males.
Within less than 24 hours Emma was receiving threatens from one website that they would publish her naked pictures.
Emma was disheartened and she wanted to stop taking part in the campaign.
Emma thinks that men should be free to express their feelings, their sadness, emotions. She is disturbed by the fact that men can’t cry. Being passionate makes you a human, not girl!

Emma may be offended if a man opens a door for her.

Not given.

False. Somebody wrote to her: “Emma, why aren’t you in the kitchen?!”
