Hollywood beauty Emma Watson to tackle beastly gender inequality with London HeForShe event

Emma Watson will be hosting an event in London as part of the HeForShe campaign this Sunday.

The talk is in conjunction with International Women’s Day and will see the Harry Potter star chat to a handpicked audience which will be live-streamed around the world.

Emma made headlines earlier in the year with her impassioned speech at the UN, with the beauty aiming to tackle the beastly nature of gender inequality.

HeForShe is a UN campaign that aims to get men to support gender equality, with more than 230,000 men signing up in support of the campaign.

The message is particularly important now in the world of football after sexist revelations were uncovered this week.

The BBC published footage of fans yelling sexist abuse at Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro and HeForShe vows to tackle the mindset that lead to this kind of behaviour.

The Spanish-born doctor has been at Chelsea for four years and oversees the medical team for the Blues.

However this does not stop certain opposition fans from chanting ‘get your tits out for the lads’ and branding her a ‘slag’.

Emma Watson’s talk will be streamed on Facebook on March 8 at 5:00pm.
