Since her speech at the He for She campaign talk at the UN, Emma Watson has become something of a spokesperson for equal rights for women. She urged men to join the fight in parity for women, mentioning that the patriarchy hurts men too. Some might argue that her words are simply Women and Gender Studies 101, while others regard them as “game-changing.”
This month, Vogue UK’s September issue cover girl has teamed with the magazine for a video in which she leads a discussion on gender equality. Watson poses questions, which are answered by designers Stella McCartney, Bella Freud, Jonathan Saunders and Erdem Moralioglu. They discuss what role the fashion industry can play in furthering women’s rights, their hopes for the future of gender equality and more.
Watch the video above to hear each designer’s viewpoints on the hot topic.
