Feminism is about giving women choice”: Emma Watson responds to critics of a photo that appeared in Vanity Fair
(CNN) Can you be a feminist and pose in a nearly see-through top for Vanity Fair?
Actor Emma Watson and a British broadcaster are on opposite sides of that debate after Watson — a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador — posed in a white, ropy Burberry top that revealed much of her breasts.
The backlash was swift. Julia Hartley-Brewer, a British radio presenter and commentator, accused Watson of being hypocritical.
“Feminism, feminism… gender wage gap… why oh why am I not taken seriously… feminism… oh, and here are my (t*ts)!” Hartley-Brewer tweeted.
She later defended her tweet, saying Watson “complains that women are sexualised and then sexualises herself in her own work. Hypocrisy.”
