Emma Watson On Saying The 'F' Word And Finally Feeling Comfortable With Who She Is

December 2, 2015 by Ella Cajayon

And that “F” word we’re referring to is ‘feminism’. It may be 2015, but apparently prior to Emma Watson‘s iconic speech back in September for the launch of her HeforShe gender equality campaign, she was advised not to use the word “feminism”.

Watson revealed to Porter magazine, “I was encouraged not to use the word ‘feminism’ because people felt that it was alienating and separating and the whole idea of the speech was to include as many people as possible.”

“But I thought long and hard and ultimately felt that it was just the right thing to do. If women are terrified to use the word, how on earth are men supposed to start using it?”

E-x-a-c-t-l-y. Feminism is not a bad word, and by shielding it, we’re only further proving the problem at stake.

Then she admits that at 25 years old, she is finally comfortable with who she is.

“[I’ve] spent more than half of my life pretending to be someone else.”

“Now at 25, for the first time in my life I feel like I have a sense of self that I’m comfortable with. I actually do have things that I want to say and I want to be my most authentic self.”

And we’re so inspired that her authentic self is becoming a spokesperson for gender equality and allowing the word “feminism” to be something that isn’t so scary to say out loud.
