Emma Watson Is Unfazed By Being Called A “Feminazi”

Emma Watson DGAF if you call her a feminazi, according to her interview in Esquire. Says Watson:

“We are not supposed to talk about money, because people will think you’re ’difficult’ or a ‘diva.’ But there’s a willingness now to be like, ’Fine. Call me a ’diva’, call me a ’feminazi’, call me ’difficult,’ call me a ’First World feminist’, call me whatever you want, it’s not going to stop me from trying to do the right thing and make sure that the right thing happens. Because it doesn’t just affect me. Whether you are a woman on a tea plantation in Kenya, or a stockbroker on Wall Street, or a Hollywood actress, no one is being paid equally.”

Also, I’m not sure any feminist cares if you call them a feminazi? I could be wrong, but anti-feminists have kind of over-done this one. Case in point: How is Emma Watson trying to build bridges and do real work on the ground in service of other people at all authoritarian?

But it’s cool; it’s just the same old internet mud-slinging. The great thing about Emma Watson and her convictions is that she’s really not living them out on the internet — she’s living them out in the real world.
