The actress Emma Watson has been targeted by hackers threatening to release nude pictures of her after she made a speech promoting gender equality.
Over the weekend, she addressed UN delegates in New York supporting the HeForShe campaign.
The UN project supports women’s equality around the globe. Watson is a Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women and spoke out about the negative impact rigid gender roles have on both men and women.
“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, not as two opposing sets of ideals,” she declared.
Watson called on both women and men to reclaim “feminism” and invited men around the world to pledge to take a stand for gender equality. More than 65,000 men have signed up so far
