Utter shock”

Malala tells Emma Watson she identifies as a feminist, thanks to her

BY WITW STAFF 11.05.15

Malala Yousafzai told Emma Watson she decided to call herself a feminist after hearing her now famous speech at the UN to launch the ‘HeforShe’ campaign, which aims to encourage men to fight for women’s rights. “It has been a tricky word. When I heard it the first time, I heard some negative responses and some positive ones. I hesitated in saying am I feminist or not?” she told Watson during an interview at a screening of the He Named Me Malala documentary at the Into Film Festival. “Then after hearing your speech I decided there’s no way and there’s nothing wrong [in] calling yourself a feminist. So I’m a feminist and we all should be a feminist because feminism is another word for equality.”

Malala also said that her father, Ziauddin, was an “example to all men” and called himself a feminist. Emma Watson said she had planned to ask the [18-year-old] Nobel Peace Prize winner whether she identified as a feminist, but decided not to when she saw that she had never used the word to describe herself. But, to Watson’s “utter shock,” Malala decided to address the question anyway. Watson posted a video of the interview to her own [social media] page, saying she found Malala’s statement very moving. “Let’s not make it scary to say you’re a feminist,” Watson wrote. “I want to make it a welcoming and inclusive movement. Let’s join our hands and move together so we can make real change. Malala and I are pretty serious about it, but we need you.”
