I started questioning gender-based assumptions a long time ago. When I was 8, I was confused for being called bossy because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents, but the boys were not.

3. Post Davos Pledge Update of the Month_____________________________

EYEisBloke reports that by last Monday 209706 men & boys had made the #heforeshe pledge. That’s 0.02% of the way towards the July goal of 1,000,000,000 pledges.


0.2% of that 0.02% have come from the 10 countries ranked lowest in UN’s own Gender Equality Index.  18% from the top ten and a whopping 47% have come from the two countries where Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson has (in her own words) enjoyed a ‘life of sheer priviledge’ and the opportunity to make ‘enough money never to have to work again”, before she was old enough to vote.

“Playing Hermione just came so naturally; I had a real affinity for her, I felt like I knew exactly who she was.  Her eagerness to please and to have the right answer is definitely like me. I’m a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.”
