Everyone needs an inspiring woman to look up to. Since portraying the bookish Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, Emma Watson has transformed into a true feminist icon, one who is as awesome as she is wise.

In the last few years, the British actress has started a feminist book club, and was appointed to UN Woman Global Goodwill Ambassador in 2014. Later that year, she delivered an inspiring speech at the UN, and officially launched her HeForShe campaign, the goal of which is to call on both women and men to be agents of change.
