Emma Watson’s excellent speech on gender equality has been making the rounds all week, and for good reason. She was eloquent, straightforward, smart, and inspiring, and if you haven’t watched it yet…wait, why haven’t you watched it yet? Seriously, go do it right now. We’ll wait.

OK, everyone back?
It will come as no surprise to those of you who know us in person that we are unabashed feminists, and to say we loved watching Ms. Watson pretty much single-handedly making feminism cool again is an understatement. I’m going to be Hermione Granger for Halloween, is what I’m saying. This year and possibly every year from now on.
And it wasn’t just us who loved it. Here, for your Friday inspiration, are a few of our favorite reactions to her speech.
