Emma heeft met Vogue Magazine een interview gehad over haar keuze om in de raad van bestuur van Kering te stappen.

he actor tells Vogue her hopes to create a more sustainable future for the fashion industry — and how the pandemic has given her a chance to reflect on how she can create meaningful change away from the screen.

Since rising to fame in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson has become as well known for her work off screen as on it. The actor was appointed a UN Women goodwill ambassador in 2014, with the star urging men to stand up for gender equality in her famous HeForShe speech at the UN headquarters that year. She’s also played a leading role in the TIME’S UP movement that began in 2018, calling for an end to sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Now, Watson has added a new role to the list, joining the board of directors at Gucci owner Kering. The 30-year-old will be chair of the board’s sustainability committee — a fitting position for the actor, who has long had an interest in eco-friendly fashion.

“For me, sustainability is about the effects of today’s actions on our shared future,” Watson tells Vogue. “As the youngest member of Kering’s board, I hope to influence decisions that will impact future generations and the world that we leave them.”

Watson has regularly flown the flag for sustainable fashion on the red carpet, wearing a Calvin Klein dress made from recycled plastic bottles at the 2016 Met Gala and opting for only eco-friendly choices during her Beauty and the Beast press tour in 2017. She’s also a supporter of the Good On You app, which rates how ethical brands are, and guest-edited Vogue Australia’s sustainability issue in 2018.

It makes sense, then, that she’s now joining forces with Kering — which has become known for its sustainability efforts within the fashion industry. The company announced it would be going carbon neutral across its own operations and supply chain last year, and spearheaded the G7 Fashion Pact that’s seen 65 brands agree to commitments on mitigating climate change, improving biodiversity, and protecting our oceans.

Here, we caught up with Watson to find out more about her new role at Kering and what sustainable fashion means to her.

A conversation between actor and activist Emma Watson and Sex and World Peace author Valerie Hudson on feminism, marriage, #MeToo, and more.

It probably takes a lot for Emma Watson to be starstruck, but that’s how the iconic Little Women and Harry Potter actor says she felt when she spoke to Texas A&M professor and author Valerie Hudson.

The two recently hopped on a call to discuss Hudson’s book, Sex and World Peace, which Gloria Steinem had given Watson a copy of, and Watson then highlighted on her Instagram for International Women’s Day. Watson and Hudson had a sprawling conversation covering everything from the power of being happily single to Watson’s work with the United Nations Women HeForShe campaign to why men just don’t listen to women enough.

Teen Vogue published their conversation, from March 4, below. It was condensed and lightly edited for clarity.

This is so cool. I’m starstruck!
sort of feel the same way. One of my daughters is currently reading the Harry Potter series, so every time she finishes a book, we get to see the movie, and of course, you know, you are their heroine.

Ah, I love that. You are such a badass. Your book, it exploded my brain — I think that’s the most accurate way that I can put it! What prompted you to write it?
When I went to graduate school in international affairs, you could have taken my entire coursework and never known there were women on Earth. It was that woman-less.… The idea that national security could have something to do with women would have seemed ludicrous, absolutely ludicrous. And I was a product of that. And it really wasn’t until my eyes began to open, I began to ask questions. I began to read things that had hints.

One of the things you discover very quickly is that if you say, “I think national security has something to do with women,” people say, “Oh, you know, come back when you’ve got some data; don’t tell us these stories.” It’s too dismissible without data. That’s why we took the data route.

Well, the data you collected is heart-stopping. Like the fact that “the largest risk for poverty in old age is determined by whether or not one has ever given birth to a child.” When you hear that if women’s caring labor were valued even at minimum wage, it would account for 40% of world production, it’s hard to hear that and remain unmoved. How far do you think we are from achieving a minimum wage or social security benefits for what is now free caring labor?
That’s a brilliant question. One of the things that I’ve begun to think lately is, Is capitalism itself predicated on all of the life-giving/caregiving work being completely unpaid, being on the backs of women? And if it is, what does that say about the sustainability of capitalism? Those who actually keep everybody alive, give you new generations, take care of the elderly and the sick, get no credit for this.

You write about the Goldberg paradigm, and how in evaluating speech the same words are rated higher coming from men. It’s likely why Harry Potter is not known to be written by Joanne Rowling. If promoting their own success is a helpful strategy for men, but women highlighting their accomplishments is a turn off, how do we get to a more level playing field?
I think one of the things that really caused me to sit up straight and pay attention is when I was hearing results from neuroscience that suggested that women’s voices may be processed by men in the same area of the brain that processes background music and noise…. And I thought to myself, Well, that explains about every departmental faculty meeting I’ve ever been in. [Laughs]

We have difficulty even accepting women’s expertise and authority. Studies have shown that when a woman joins a largely male body or committee or whatever, that her expertise is discounted by fully 50%. So she may actually be the one with the most expertise in the room, but she’ll be processed by those around her, including women, as having half that.
