Emma Watson gives £1MILLION to sexual harassment fund
Here’s why Emma Watson donated £1 million to the UK Justice and Equality Fund
'This is your moment too’
Emma Watson has always been an advocate for women’s rights and a powerful voice to call for change.
It’s hardly surprising therefore that she is at the forefront of the UK’s response to the Time’s Up movement, the Justice and Equality Fund.
In fact, the 27-year-old actress donated the first £1 million, immediately taking the fund to the halfway point of its £2 million crowdfunding goal.
The movement, inspired by the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns, has been started by a group of UK-based women in the entertainment industry, working together to challenge sexual harassment, assault and discrimination across all industries and sections of society.

‘The figures are staggering,’ the women behind the fund announced. ‘Half of all women have experienced sexual harassment at work. Nearly one in five women has suffered sexual assault. We are not talking about a few bad apples. We are waking up to the full scale of systemic abuse based on gender and power – abuse that hurts us all.’
They continued: ‘Like all big problems, it needs big, bold solutions. We have created the Justice and Equality Fund, to create the far-reaching personal, social, legal and policy changes that will ensure everyone can feel safe at work, at play and at home.
