Speech Story

Feminism is something that can be highly questionable, but some people are trying to bring what they believe the true meaning of feminism is to the sport light. One such person is actress Emma Watson.

Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, gave a speech yesterday at the One Young World conference. She talked about what becoming an activist has done to her life. She said, “I was very nervous before that speech; the nerves were followed by a tremendous high immediately afterwards, and a crashing low a few days after that.”

Watson went on to talk about how her decision to start the HeforShe campaign was like opening, “a Pandora’s Box,” of standing ovations, and a level of critique that turned into threats.”

  1. That first phrase, “Feminism is something that can be highly questionable,” is confusing enough to get you in a lot of trouble. Luckily, you don’t need it: “Some people are trying to bring what they believe the true meaning of feminism is to the sport light. One such person is actress Emma Watson.” That’s a workable lede. It does require you get to specifics and examples quickly, however. There were a coupe of good qutes that would support the “true meaning of feminism” focus.
