It's a good day to be a fan of Emma Watson.
First, you woke up to news that JK Rowling has brought Hermione and company back to (adult) life in a new short story.
And now you're learning that Watson has been named Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women.
U.N. Women is a branch of the United Nations devoted to gender equality, and Watson has the honor of becoming the first appointment under Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, who became U.N. Women’s executive director in 2013.
"Women’s rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting,” Watson said in a statement, adding:
“I still have so much to learn, but as I progress I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role."
Watson joins Angelina Jolie as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador.
