Mentions of Emma Watson in the media [May 18 - 24, 2015]

  • Amy Poehler talks about Emma

I feel like we have a lot of great, empowering role models for girls and young women these days—you, Tavi Gevinson, Emma Watson, who is doing some great work as the U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador . . .

Amy Poehler: I agree. She is doing an amazing job. From just a straight-up artistic, creative, and dramatic perspective, I have so much faith in the generation that is coming up, and young women are very inspiring to me. The way that some women are using their capital, and figuring out what their currency is—‘What do I want to do with the currency that was either earned or given to me?’ And when people use it in an unexpected or empowering way, or they add value . . . because it’s not always someone’s first instinct or the easiest path.
