Emma Watson supports women told not to smile

Turkey’s Prime Minister, Bülent Arınç received backlash recently when he said: “A woman should be chaste. She should know the difference between public and private. She should not laugh in public.”

Following this, Turkish women, and indeed, women around the world protested in the most powerful way – through social media.

Using the hashtag #direnkahkaha (resisted laughter), Emma shared an image of herself laughing while standing outside in public.

The move comes only weeks after the Harry Potter actress was announced as UN Women's Goodwill Ambassador. 

Something tells us the politician regrets his questionable comments….

Smile, girls!
