Our recommendations are echoed in President Macron`s call for heads of state and government around the world to pass discriminatory laws and pass legislative reforms that accelerate progress for girls, women and gender equality. We encourage not only the G7, but also all governments to join what France calls the “Biarritz Partnership” and to comply with international agreements on women`s rights.

Watson`s childhood is well documented: his parents are lawyers; Born in Paris, she spent her first five years in France. At the age of six, she attended Dragon School in Oxford and took acting classes at the local stagecoach Theatre Arts branch. When she was little, she was determined to become an actress long before she appeared in Harry Potter. “I played a symbol,” she says thoughtfully. “I know this because it`s a symbol for me.” But Emma Watson is not Hermione Granger. “It`s not me. And I`m not what my name strangely meant either,” she said of her own glory. Even people who are sometimes very close to me can`t let go.
Or you only see me. And sometimes I have to say, “No, no, I need what you need. I`m as human as you are. I`m as worried as you are. I fight like you. We met for the first time last year at a meeting for activists, where she was visibly happy to listen and learn from activists from all walks of life, and she asked me a lot of questions about my experience as a transgender and activist. I was impressed by her empathy – after all, her role as an actress is to put herself in the shoes of others – and I admired the time spent connecting to stories that could be very different from hers, and I left with an appreciation of the thought and care she puts into what she has to say. “I have to be connected to people who share the conversation ,”I didn`t sleep last night either,”” she tells me. And that`s how, for the last six months, it`s been such a balm for me to create space and bring together groups of people. FYI: Emma wears a Teatum Jones outfit with Kimai earrings. While gender equality remains a complex and widespread issue, Watson`s work is essential to redefining what it means to be a powerful woman and strengthening women`s voices so that they can extend their power to other women around the world.
We, members of the G7 Advisory Committee on Gender Equality, are calling on countries to abandon archaic and discriminatory laws and encourage Emma Watson and I to be allowed on my knees on the plush sofa in the Royal Suite in Savoy. Ten minutes ago, she greeted me with a fraternal hug, and since then I have not been able to shake the feeling that we were at school and that we want to do the Christmas show together. We ask that the room be emptied so that we can speak freely, but there are still a dozen assistants, stylists and crews hidden behind a wall of light, filming us in front of the camera, silent and silent, like the ancient bronze Cupid posing on the mantle. But Emma seems to agree with the setup. I guess she`s been watched all her life.

In light of the revelations #metoo, she donated $1 million last year to help victims of sexual harassment, and last summer she launched a legal advice line in England and Wales for the same purpose.
