Sexual Threats against Emma Watson – Take It Personally

September 24, 2014

“On September 21, actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson stood up at the UN Headquarters in New York City and delivered a powerful speech condemning the harm that gender discrimination causes to both men and women, and inviting men to become active participants in the global struggle for equality. The next day, anonymous individuals set up a website targeting Watson with sexual threats, counting down the five days until, presumably, her private nude images will be made public.”

Writing for Vox, Amanda Taub, states that the threats against Emma Watson are threats against every woman, and we must all take these threats personally!
