Emma Watson Named Feminist Celebrity of 2014. Check out Who Else Made It to the Top 10

 

One thing is obvious, 2014 was a historic year for feminism! Emma Watson launched her HeForShe campaign at the United Nations in September '14 and for this reason she recieves the number one place on the Ms. Foundation for Women's voters list. The ranking happened through an online survey which was promoted by the Ms. Foundation, in partnership with Cosmopolitan.com.

 

The top ten of the survey:

 

1. Emma Watson


 

2. Laverne Cox


 

3. Rachel Maddow


 

4. Beyoncé


 

5. Cher


 

6. Amy Poehler


 

7. Tina Fey


 

8. Meryl Streep


 

9. Mindy Kaling


 

10. Ann Curry

 


“We celebrate all feminists every day, but today we’re giving a hat tip to celebrities who are helping to promote women’s equality." President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women, Teresa Younger said. "Every celebrity on the list has either embraced the term ‘feminist,’ spoken out for women’s equal rights or battled against sexist oppression.”  

 

In her inspiring speech at the United Nations headquarters, Emma Watson demanded boys and men advocate for girls’ and women’s equality. The speech received a lot of attention word-wide, however, Watson used her celebrity power to speak out against sexism at other times as well. From pointing out the gender politics of the celebrity nude photo hack to calling out sexist politicians, she's consistently taking a stand for women's rights and equality.

 

Let's hope for more amazing advances in equality in 2015.
