We're SO impressed by and grateful for Emma Watson.

On Friday, the intelligent actress who moonlights as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, gave another impassioned speech about the importance of gender equality.

Back in September, Emma introduced the HeforShe movement, an initiative which encourages men and women to work together to end gender inequality.

Watson's Friday speech followed up on the progress the campaign has achieved so far, and what HeforShe plans for the future.

The actress remarked:

"Since He for She launched in New York last September, I think it would be fair to say that my colleagues and I have been stunned by the response. The He for She conference was watched over 11 million times, sparking 1.2 billion social media conversations, culminating in the #HeForShre hashtag becoming so popular that Twitter painted it on the walls of its headquarters.

And men from almost every country in the world signed up to our commitment. Everyone, from Desmond Tutu to Prince Harry to Hillary Clinton to Yoko Ono have issued their support or contacted us since Sept. 20. Everything from marathons being run, merchandise being created, 15-year-old boys writing to national newspapers deploring female discrimination, young girls collecting hundreds of signatures—it's all happened in the last four months. I couldn't have dreamed it, but it's happened. Thank you so much."

Wow. It's simply astonishing to consider how much the 24-year-old has achieved thus far.

Check out Emma introducing her new initiative, IMPACT 10X10X10 (below)!

We love how Watson is urging men to share their stories of supporting women in both the domestic and professional sphere.

There's no time like the present to show your support for the women in your life — let's help Emma to end gender inequality once and for all!

    Love this! Maybe this is the answer for all those young women out there who have been turned away from the word 'feminism'.

    Hope her initiative works.Would rather see better equality in pay. Where I used to work a very talented female computer scientist in our development was actually downgraded and put under a male Asian boss. He was not as smart in practical matters. I was in another department and had to help him several times with simple tasks and I do not have a BS or BA.
    PS - Can we lose the audio ads?

    Emma forgot to add that the next step of her campaign is that she will lead a Pickett against the exposure of women at the 50 Shades of Gray Premeire.
    Spread the word Bitches!!!
