Really encouraging to meet so many young Uruguayan activists today, who care so passionately about the politics of their country. They were so eloquent! Thank you for giving up so much of your time. I can’t wait to see what you will all do in the future. UN Women #HeForShe #womeninpolitics #uruguay

“Next summer is Legion. The summer after is the next Fantastic Four and then the next Legion. And I know I’m doing – the director of Whiplash, Damien – I know I’m doing his next film in March. Me and Emma Watson. And then, hopefully I can do something in the fall,” he explains.

Watson attended the event organized by women’s groups pushing the country’s lawmaking body to increase their numbers of elected female senators and deputies.
British actor Emma Watson says she is “immensely touched” by the reception she received in Uruguay, where she traveled as a goodwill ambassador for the UN’s women’s agency.
Hundreds of young people greeted the 24-year-old Tuesday as she delivered a 4,000-signature petition to parliament calling for greater political participation by women.
Some lawmakers brought their children or grandchildren to meet Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” films.
Thirteen percent of Uruguayan parliamentarians are women, and the country has never had a female president.
