How Emma Watson Exposed the Madness of Modern Feminism


               So despite trumpeting the virtues of feminism for years, establishing the HeforShe campaign, being UN women’s goodwill ambassador since 2014, as well as being a quality actress, it seems that not even Emma Watson is safe from the lunacy that is modern feminism.
