In case you missed it, Emma gave an amazing speech last year about gender inequality at the U.N. Afterwards, hackers claimed they would release naked pics of her for her "stupid feminist speeches." The whole thing turned out to be a hoax, but Emma never let it intimidate her.
"I knew it was a hoax. I knew the pictures didn't exist," she explained. "If anything, it made me so much more determined. I was just raging. It made me so angry that I was just like, 'This is why I have to be doing this!' So if anything, it actually, if they were trying to put me off it, they did the opposite."
Emma actually took a man to dinner and admits it was awkward to have traditional roles reversed. "I chose the restaurant and I offered to pay and it was really awkward and uncomfortable...but the cool thing about it was that we were both willing to have the conversation about why it was awkward...we were able to have this dialogue. Chivalry should be consensual."
We totally agree! Head over to Emma's Facebook to watch all of her inspiring webcast.
