Los Angeles: Emma Watson vanity Fair photoshoot is attracting more than fare share of media attention. While some people are appreciating her courage to stand up and show herself as she is, others claim that it was an anti-feminist photoshoot.
They claim that the Vanity Fair photoshoot was undoing of Emma Watson’s very own feminist values that she has expressed so openly in the past. Reports suggest that the severe criticism of the photoshoot has shattered her peace of mind.
To be fair, there was nothing that could have bothered her fans or critics alike. There are many women going for bolder photoshoot that appear almost on the daily basis in one magazine or the other. May be, people are offended as they expect better from a UN Goodwill Ambassador.
In response to wide-spread criticism against her Vanity Fair photoshoot, the actress, who is a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and the pioneer behind the #HeForShe campaign said, “It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is…Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality. I really don’t know what my t—s have to do with it… I’m confused. Most people are confused. No, I’m just always just quietly stunned”.
But there is no denying that this explanation will make more people question her understanding of feminism than satisfying them and above all shouting them down. Many on the social media have called Watson of being a hypocrite.
