She incorporates habit one in her life at the age of 14 when the press would start to sexualize her. Living a proactive life, her “expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men, and unattractive” (qtd. in Watson 1). In her speech, she describes what her goals are and what her rights should be. Watson began her journey with the end in mind, similar to the lesson habit two teaches.

It is about gender equality and that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men. Emma Watson’s speech mentioned the different gender stereotypes. For an example, there is the stereotype that men have to be aggressive and strong and that women are weak. Who set this standard? Men are just as unequal as women are but everyone deserves to be equal. “Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive… strong…” Gender is something that is innate and is out of our control, so why are we judged by something we can’t change. Part of seeing in a new way is to accept people for the way they are. Everyone should go by the saying they learned in elementary school “Treat others the way you want to be treated”. We wouldn’t want to be put down or have to act a certain way just to conform with others. Everyone is unique in their own way and should be show the world what they can contribute to the
When looking Southern’s video the aimed to destroy feminism and the stigma attached to third wave feminism is a clear motive.

At the United Nations campaign launch of “HeforShe” on September 20, 2014, Emma Watson stated in her influential speech that, “Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong…It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals” (Duca 2014). Similarly to Emma Watson, there are countless women in our generation who strongly believe in feminism and preach about what they truly believe in. However, some women are trapped in controlled societies where they face oppression and struggle to get their voice heard on what is right and wrong. This particular society can be strikingly demonstrated in Margaret Atwood’s novel, The Handmaid’s Tale. It is crucial for women to have fundamental human rights to express themselves in our society today because there cannot be any more injustice; due to the fact that women are not safe, must stand up for themselves and are incapable when it comes to certain circumstances.
During her speech at Harvard, Rowling seems to use the intricate personal details of her own experience to emotionally validate her argument for embracing failure. Her vivid description of her thoughts during her desperate times are used to portray her advice as sincere, realistic, and true. Perhaps, one of the best examples of this is when Rowling opens up to her audience and says “That period of my life was a dark one, and I had no idea that there was going to be what the press has since represented as a kind of fairy tale resolution. I had no idea then how far the tunnel extended, and for a long time, any light at the end of it was a hope rather than a reality.” (par. 17). In this statement, Rowling uses the image inspiring words associated

In my opinion, do not is possible establish a rule in the case of famous people otherwise, they can say opinions interesting or little substantiated, similar to any people. To illustrate in the last sense enough is to know the declarations of Shaquille O’Neal when he said that the earth has a plane surface. His grand argument it is that when he drove from Florida to California, all time he looked a plain surface. Obviously, that argument does not have a scientific foundation.
