Emma Watson Advocates For Gender Equality in New Short Film Hurdles

Emma Watson's enthusiasm for social justice is unwavering—especially when it comes to gender equality. Right at the heels of delivering a groundbreaking speech at the U.N. about campus safety, the Harry Potter alum tweeted a riveting video, dedicated to the history of the women's movement.

Set to Sia's "Chandelier", the two-minute long ensemble features Olympic athletes jumping over hurdles while Emma narrates. "Women and girls have always faced hurdles, but that's never stopped us," she says. "We've sacrificed, fought, campaigned, succeeded, been knocked back, and succeeded again."

She continues: "In a race for justice, we've leaped over countless obstacles to win our rights. Women didn't have the right to vote, were excluded from education, were not paid fairly for their work and had no voice in political leadership. Even the first Olympic games didn't include women. That was then."

Female athletes begin to jump over hurdles while several statistics appear on-screen. They start with New Zealand giving women the right to vote in 1893 and end with the fact that 21 countries have female Heads of State or Government.

Then, Emma speaks again letting us know that though we've come far, "there are many huge and high hurdles left to jump". There are still 15 million child brides every year, 62 million girls who aren't going to school and 1 in 3 women are still victims of violence. "The race is still on every day of every year," Emma says. "But we will cross the finishing line."
