Quotes

"I am convinced that Emma's intellect and passion will enable UN Women's messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally" she said in a statement. (Editing by Belinda Goldsmith) ;))
"I wanted to draw the analogy," Greenburg said, "between Paul BrownBrown and Branch Rickey , because Paul Brown was known for so much in the National Football League, but never got any credit for being the Branch Rickey of professional football. And that's not fair."
Watson also said she's noticed that women choosing not to identify as feminists. "Apparently, I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, 'too aggressive,' isolating and anti-men, unattractive, even" she shared. "Why has the word become such an uncomfortable one?"
"If there's one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop" she said before highlighting what 'feminism' means in the first place: "the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities."
