People Criticize Emma Watson for Posing Topless When She Says She’s a Feminist
One of Emma Watson‘s most poignant quotes goes like this — “We want to empower women to do exactly what they want, to be true to themselves, to have the opportunities to develop. Women should feel free.” SO TRUE. The actress, who’s a proud feminist, does everything she can to make all genders equal, however we now see just how far society still has to go to make her dreams a reality.
The Beauty and the Beast star graced the March 2017 cover of Vanity Fair, and also posed for a series of sunning pictures that can be found inside the magazine, including one where she’s wearing a completely sheer top with a half jacket on top.
Absolutely stunning, right? Sadly, not everyone thinks so. The 26-year-old beauty has been getting TONS of criticism for her decision to pose topless when she claims she’s a feminist.

What. The. F*ck?! In case you don’t know, the definition of feminism is “the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.” If men are able to take their clothes off and be called “sexy” and “desirable,” then women should, too. Criticizing Emma for choosing what to do with her body is the exact reason why feminism is necessary and proves that inequality in society is still incredibly real. DO YOU, LADIES!
Equality is important, which is why these female celebs support the #FREETHENIPPLE campaign:
As a supermodel, Cara Delevingne is used to nudity and is completely comfortable with her body. Because of this, the Paper Towns actress is a big supporter of the #FreeTheNipple campaign and showed why on Instagram.
