Emma Watson, British actor and self-described "Harry Potter girl," made a rarely-argued point about feminism in her speech at the United Nations on September 22. "We don't often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes, but they are," she said.

"I've seen my father's role as a parent valued less by society," Watson added. "I've seen young men suffering from mental illness, unable to ask for help for fear it would make them less of a man. … Men don't have the benefits of gender equality either."

Watson also recounted her realization that she was a feminist, and offered thanks and encouragement to the many people she describes as inadvertent feminists. It's easy to see any entrepreneur, boss, mentor or manager filling this role--or not.

"My mentors didn't assume that I would go less far because I might bear a child one day," Watson said. "They are the inadvertent feminists who are changing the world today. We need more of those."

Watson's speech, below, runs about 10 minutes.
