Emma Watson

Emma Watson is surely one of the most inspiring person of 21st century. Best known as a great actress starring in the Harry Potter films, she is also known for always having a pen close by. Whether it be on screen when she is writing down spells with her feather quill as Hermione Granger, or making study notes with a Parker fountain pen.

During one scene in Harry Potter film, when the students were taking notes using their quills, Emma wasn’t pretending to write. She was actually using it. Here’s what she wrote:

Emma studied English Literature at Brown University and fell in love with the Parker brand. Not only did it help her achieve what she hoped in her studies, but it has also helped her draft persuasive speeches as part of her activism for gender equality.

Emma Watson is perhaps equally well-known for her activism as she is for her acting career. Here are some key areas of her advocacy:

  • UN Women Goodwill Ambassador: In July 2014, Emma was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Her work with the UN has focused on the empowerment of young women.
  • HeForShe Campaign: Emma’s launch of the HeForShe campaign in 2014 included a widely praised speech at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, where she invited men and boys to join the movement for gender equality.
  • Education for Girls: Watson has been a vocal advocate for girls’ education worldwide, visiting countries like Bangladesh and Zambia to promote education for young women.
  • Sustainable Fashion: Emma is a proponent of sustainable fashion. She has used her public appearances to promote clothing that is ethically sourced and produced.

In February 2019 she attracted another great attention from pen aficionado by showing her copper Kaweco Liliput fountain pen in a conference carried out by G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council in Paris.

Another admirable thing of Emma Watson is surely her support and solidarity for the freedom and humanity in Palestine. Emma Watson has shown support for the Palestinian cause, notably through social media. In January 2021, she shared a post on Instagram featuring the quote “Solidarity is a verb” with a picture from a pro-Palestinian rally, leading to a mix of praise and criticism. It is important to note that her activism primarily focuses on gender equality and social justice, and while she has expressed support for Palestine, she tends to emphasise broader humanitarian and equality issues.

Her post-potterverse filmography is also supporting her stances. She starred in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (2012), portraying a free-spirited teenager in this coming-of-age story. She also appeared in “The Bling Ring” (2013), a film based on the true story of a group of teenagers who burglarised celebrity homes in Los Angeles. In 2017, Watson played Belle in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” a role that allowed her to bring a modern, feminist perspective to the character.
