Emma Watson gave yet another inspiring speech at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland on Friday, elaborating on the powerful words she shared about gender equality at the United Nations last Fall. Saying she was "stunned" by the huge, supportive response to the HeForShe campaign, the actress thanked people for their commitment and talked about what's next for the campaign. "Women share this planet 50/50, and they are underrepresented, their potential astonishingly untapped," she said. "We are very excited to be launching IMPACT 10x10x10 to bring HeForShe into its next phase . . . I'm here to ask you: what is the impact you can have? How, what, where, when, and with whom? We want to help." Watch the empowering speech, then read more of Emma's best quotes on feminism.
