Time 100 Most Influential list

Other Awards

Time names Watson in its 100 list of top influencers primarily for her #HeForShe campaign. Watson’s international campaign calls for gender equality, even inviting men to give their support. Other actors on the list include Bradley Cooper and Julianne Moore. The magazine:

Her HeForShe speech at Davos was an Internet sensation, but unsurprisingly, it drew the typical antifeminist rants and even some threats. Watson chose to highlight the moving letters she has received from fathers who tell her they are investing new hope in the future for their daughters. But she was also frank about the bullying tactics of her detractors and one site that made an empty threat to release nude photos. Her confident and cool reaction: ‘If they were trying to put me off, they did the opposite.’
