Watch: Emma Watson Calls For Equal Rights With Vogue

Emma Watson, not only is she one of the most universally admired actresses of her generation, but she’s also a trailblazing celebrity activist. In this video for UK Vogue, of which she covers this month, Watson takes some time from her packed schedule to discuss gender equality. The cause is especially close to her heart, as the young actress has been a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador this past year, heading up the HeForShe movement, a campaign calling on men to support women’s rights around the world.

In this rather nifty video she talks to respected designers Stella McCartney, Bella Freud and Jonathan Saunders about where they stand on equal rights for all genders. (Thankfully, they’re all sound.)

When you watch the video above, you really do wonder at how Emma Watson has imposter syndrome. She’s simply fabulous.
