Fashion Is a Feminist Issue, According to Emma Watson

Meghan Blalock

Emma Watson might be just 25 years old, but she has already established herself—via her involvement with the United Nations’ He for She campaign and her vocalizations about the issue—as one of the foremost voices for feminism in the world of fashion. In the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, Watson talks even more candidly about the subject so close to her heart and mind.

“I think using fashion as a means of expression is brilliant. One of the ways I became a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador was through my interest in fair-trade fashion,” Watson explains to Porter. “Because so many women design and make the clothes we wear, it’s primarily the working conditions of women that are affected by the decisions we make, so fashion is a feminist issue.”

We have to confess: We are in agreement on this particular issue, and we pretty much stand by everything that comes out of Watson’s mouth regarding feminism. Head to iTunes’ Apple store to download the latest issue of Porter on December 4, and keep scrolling to get a sneak peek of the spread!
