Emma Watson Schools 'Topless' Photo Critics In New Interview [Watch]

"Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women."

Emma Watson had to inform the world that feminists are allowed to have boobs this week in the wake of a "controversial" Vanity Fair photoshoot. The actress/activist clapped back at claims that posing for a semi-topless photo makes her a bad feminist, telling BBC News:

"Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It's about freedom, it's about liberation, it's about equality. I really don't know what my tits have to do with it."

The image is part of a cover story shot by Tim Walker and was shared on the Vanity Fair Instagram earlier this week.

Here's the enlightened way some people and publications responded:

Emma was understandably baffled by these reactions, saying: "Feminism is about giving women choice... It's very confusing. I'm confused. Most people are confused. I'm always just, kind of, quietly stunned."
