Emma Watson delivers fierce feminist speech at 71st Annual United Nations General Assembly... after 'legal victory against racy photos'

September 20, 2016   |   Written by Kate Thomas

She’s been a passionate UN Women Goodwill Ambassador since 2014.
And Emma Watson was the guest of honour at the 71st Annual United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Tuesday, where she delivered a passionate speech to mark UN Women releasing its first HeForShe Impact 10X10X10 University Parity Report.

The 26-year-old actress, a staunch campaigner for the HeForShe campaign aiming to promote gender equality, took to the podium to discuss the new developments.

The new report explains the commitments made by 10 universities across the world to focus on gender equality on campus.

The universities, which include the University of Oxford in England, Sciences Po in Paris and Georgetown University in the United States, have pledged to take a zero-tolerance stance on sexual assault, to lose the gender gap in administration and academia, and to provide briefings on gender issues for faculty and students.

Emma looked like she meant business as she presented her report, dressed entirely in custom-made, sustainable fashion by ZADY.

The Harry Potter actress shared on social media: ‘Excited to be wearing bespoke, fully sustainable items which @zady designed for me. They’ll be available to buy on zady.com soon! #heforshe @unwomen @proenzaschouler’.

Emma approached the brand to create bespoke, sustainable items for her wardrobe – and these pieces will become available for preorder on ZADY.com.
The Brown University graduate sported a smart turtleneck jumper and a beige wrap skirt with a subtle side-split, set off with metal-capped heels.
Emma’s appearance at the UN comes following reports she got her legal team involved after website Celeb Jihad allegedly published private photos of her.

According to TMZ, the star sent a cease and desist letter after images showing her wearing a sheer top were made public.
The report claims the photos, reportedly originally taken by Emma’s stylist, have since been removed.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for the star for comment.
