Emma is lid geworden van de raad van bestuur van Kering. Voor de aankondigd werd een nog niet verschenen outtake van Emma door Carter Bowen uit 2016 gebruikt.

Opvallend bericht uit de modewereld. Actrice en activiste Emma Watson zal voortaan zetelen in de raad van bestuur van Kering, de tweede grootste luxegroep ter wereld.

Emma Watson wordt aan boord gehaald om Kering, eigenaar van onder meer Balenciaga, Gucci en Saint Laurent, een groener imago te geven. De dertigjarige actrice houdt zich namelijk ook bezig met duurzame mode. Zo is ze het gezicht van de app Good On You, die merken rangschikt volgens hun ethische en duurzaamheidskenmerken, en draagt ze zelf zo vaak mogelijk ecologische mode op de rode loper. Daarnaast is ze ook nog eens VN-goodwillambassadeur.

“Emma Watson is een van de populairste actrices en bekendste activistes wereldwijd”, motiveert Kering de beslissing. De in Parijs geboren Britse krijg naast haar plaats in de raad van bestuur van de luxegroep ook de functie van voorzitter van de duurzaamheidscommissie toebedeeld. Zij moet daarmee deels Stella McCartney vervangen, de modeontwerpster en specialiste ter zake die begin dit jaar de overstap maakte naar concurrent LVMH.

“Indrukwekkende talenten”
Naast Watson vervoegen ook zakenman Tidjane Thiam en ondernemer Jean Liu de raad van bestuur van Kering. “De collectieve intelligentie die vanuit verschillende standpunten komt en de rijkdom aan diverse ervaringen zijn cruciaal voor de toekomst van onze organisatie. Ik ben er trots op dat ik zulke indrukwekkende talenten aan het team kan toevoegen”, zegt CEO François-Henri Pinault in een mededeling.

Emma heeft aangekondigd een andere richting op te gaan met haar boekclub ‘Our Shared Shelf’. On de onderstaande bericht laat Emma weten dat ze meer tijd gaan nemen op zich te richten of persoonlijke en professionele kansen. Dit houd in dat ze geen tijd meer heeft om ‘Our Shared Shelf’ forum bij te houden en vanaf nu nieuwe boeken zal aanbevelen via instagram met de hashtag #oursharedshelf. Ze zal niet meer elke twee maanden een boek aanbeveling via het forum zoals ze hiervoor deed. Het forum zal open blijven voor fans zodat iedereen elkaar boeken kan aanraden of dit ook met de hashtag #oursharedshelf op instagram doen.

Our Shared Shelf was a title dreamed up by YOU, all of the amazing individuals who support and contribute to creating conversations around intersectionality, feminism and equal rights. It was important to me that Our Shared Shelf was not owned by me, but indeed, SHARED! You offered me the perfect title, and I have been astonished, humbled and filled with gratitude by how shared it has felt, with over a million people all over the world now active in the club. To those who’ve written long thoughtful threads, to the incredible authors who’ve answered Our Shared Shelf questions, to the hundreds of people globally who’ve hidden feminist titles alongside me over these last three years, you’ve made my wishes come true; I am truly part of the greatest feminist ninja gang the world has ever seen! Most importantly a massive THANK YOU for being part of my little piece of mischief. To sum up all that I have learned from this community would be an impossible task.

Circling back to the title for a moment. It annoyed me that Our Shared Shelf was constantly abbreviated to “O.S.S.”. The same letters (different order) as the international symbol for distress! However, over the years the three letters have developed their own beautiful meaning for me. This book club initially was my own kind of distress signal! Life, it turns out, can be difficult to navigate. We are often caught in the storm and lost at sea. The journey to becoming an independent thinker, activist and mischief maker is treacherous! OSS was my distress signal and call for help – and it came! It has become a beacon and guiding light. If you know someone sending out a jumbled distress signal, please pass on or tell them about OSS. Activism and change making can feel lonely. This is your tribe, this is your collective consciousness and we are raising it together.

At the beginning of every new year, and particularly so now as it is the beginning of a new decade, I’ve been prompted to look at my next steps. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking! First of all Happy 2020, it’s going to be an amazing year for all of you. This year I want to focus my energy on some new personal and professional opportunities and while I want to say YES to everything – it’s IMPOSSIBLE.

What does this mean? Moving forward the OSS board will be unmoderated but remain open keeping intact all previous conversations. I will not be making the regular bi-monthly book announcement via the board, I will be making future book recommendations through Instagram using the hashtag #oursharedshelf instead. My wish is that this community continues to share and announce their own book recommendations with this hashtag keeping what we’ve built together alive and well for the future. I am excited to see it continue to grow and mature. I might just be reading along with you! Keep your eyes peeled as I announce other books later this year.

Love

Emma

Emmma is voor de duur van tenminste 3 jaar aangewezen als Associate Fellow bij de Lady Margaret Hall van Oxford Universiteit. Wat deze nieuwe rol precies inhoud is mij niet bekend. De afgelopen periode bezocht Emma de universiteit meerdere malen om over gelijkheid in geslacht en vrouwenrechten te praten.

LMH is delighted to announce the appointment of nine new Visiting Fellows for a three year term (2019-22), and the appointment of Emma Watson as an Associate Fellow.

The Visiting Fellows are people drawn from a variety of backgrounds, callings and professions who will form a bridge between LMH’s academic community and the worlds they inhabit and represent. We are most grateful to our previous Visiting Fellows (2016-19) who contributed so much insight, knowledge and understanding within their specialist fields and culturally enhanced the life of the College.

As an Associate Fellow, Emma Watson, will continue her valuable work with the College with particular emphasis on promoting gender equality and women’s rights. Emma was previously an LMH Visiting Fellow (2016-19).

The idea of having non-academic visiting fellows at an Oxford College is not entirely new. Lord Nuffield, in founding his own College, wanted people drawn from government, politics, civil service and other institutions to play a role in the life of Nuffield College.

Names were canvassed from LMH’s governing body, of people of distinction whom we admired and whom we felt could add to the intellectual and cultural life of LMH. Those appointed span subject areas including: environment, sport, history, the performing arts, literature, feminism, law and public service.

Alan Rusbridger, Principal of LMH, said: “We welcome all our new Visiting Fellows and Emma Watson who has now been appointed an Associate Fellow. We look forward to them contributing to the life of LMH and to debate, perform, challenge and otherwise engage with the fellows, tutors, staff and students.

“We can learn much from them and we hope they treasure their time with us.”

Emma steunt de website ‘Good On You’ een website die kledingmerken beoordeling op hoe goed ze zijn voor het milieu. Door te kijken hoe duurzaam ze gemaakt zijn, door te kijken in hoeverre ze o,a, kleding verspilling tegengaan en kleding recyclen. Emma is hier al jaren een grote voorstander van.

Introducing Our New Supporter, Emma Watson

There is no better advocate for ethical and sustainable fashion than Emma Watson.

Throughout her career she’s been a driving force of the movement. Her work includes collaborations with ethical brands such as People Tree, her Instagram advocacy with @The Press Tour, and her leadership on Vogue Australia’s first sustainability issue.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce Emma as a supporter of Good On You. We’ll be rating the clothes she wears on the red carpet and beyond, so she can be confident her outfits meet the highest standards of ethics and sustainability.

Here is what Emma has to say about why she’s using Good On You.

“Fashion helps shape our identities. What we wear signifies who we are and what we stand for. I support Good On You because I need to know my clothes do not harm our precious planet or its people.

On the red carpet we’re often asked not what we are wearing but ‘who’. It’s as if the ideas behind the clothes – the label, the designer, the collection – have more meaning than the garment itself. But there’s something missing.

There’s a bigger story to be told about the conditions in which our clothes are made, the resources that have been used and the impact they’ve had on communities.

Good On You is my benchmark for sustainable fashion. This means that when I’m given a platform to speak about my choice of outfit, I will have a meaningful story to tell. And it’s powerful.

But I am just one person. In truth, we can all play a part in driving fashion to be more sustainable and ethical. By choosing to wear clothes from labels that embrace transparent, creative and innovative production methods; and by re-wearing, recycling, swapping and thrifting.

Together we are building a bigger, better movement every day.

Fashion is a creative force. It has the power to persuade, to influence, and transform. When fashion truly embraces transparency and sustainability, other spheres will follow. We’re on a journey towards a more sustainable future.

This is just the beginning.”

Today is also the launch of a new look and feel for Good On You. We want to make it easier for you to discover ethical fashion, find all the info you need, and read all the stories you want on our website.

We’ve worked with a team of designers and developers to rebrand and rebuild our site, and we have some exciting new things planned for later in the year too.

So from all the team at Good On You, thank you for your support we literally couldn’t do what we do without it.

Let’s make 2019 the biggest year for ethical fashion so far.

Emma heeft het voorwoord in de de 3e uitgave van Gloria Steinem’s boek ‘Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions’ uit 1983. Naast het voorwoord van Emma heeft Gloria ook wat nieuwe teksten toegevoegd. In 2016 was ‘My Life On The Road’ van de schijfster Emma’s eerste boek voor haar boekenclub, sindsdien zijn de twee goede vrienden en heeft Emma haar ook geinterviewd.

“Why do I love Gloria’s writing so much? She makes what otherwise can be arduous and depressing reading, into something not only relatable but enjoyable…She believes in personal testimony – the sharing and passing on of women’s stories…She uncovers things that are obscured by today’s conditioning and normalizing which when exposed, are absolutely fascinating…Her plain common sense – calling things out as they are – will make you laugh out loud…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes the world she envisions seems so far out and impossible to me or just wildly optimistic. But I have come to believe it is through radical feminism and the radical nature of Gloria’s message, that the job of equality will get done. I used to think the citadel didn’t have to topple. Now I believe it just might and should, and that we need to let old ways of being die for something new to be born. This book contains ideas for that new road, even though some were written almost forty years ago.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People have asked me what the feminist movement needs to succeed. A new word? More men involved? I would rephrase the question. What obstacles need to be removed for us to succeed? In order to win our full humanity, in life, we have to confront the biggest superpower in the world: the patriarchy…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I never liked the idea of being a rebel. I played Hermione Granger, for goodness sake, who once famously compared the notion of being expelled to death! I remember thinking my first detention was the end of the world. But of all the things to fight for, I’d say freedom and respect are pretty good ones! And if I can do it with, and in the wake of, women like Gloria, all the better. And actually, as Hermione and I learned, being disruptive was quite fun after all.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, have your mind blown, laugh out loud, think in new ways, get angry, feel the feminist affinity…This was the first collection of feminist writing Gloria ever published…I hope they become as precious to you.”
