Emma Watson is taking on a major new role and, no, it's not for her next film! The British actress and recent college grad, has been appointed as a goodwill ambassador for UN Women. Watson's role will focus on empowering young women worldwide through the UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, which aims to promote gender equality.
"The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly," she says in the statement announcing her role. "Women’s rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting."
Going to be working for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and The Empowerment of Women (!!!) http://t.co/9ABpKSrNCb— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) July 7, 2014
We can't wait to see what she'll accomplish!
