The British actress Emma Watson recently interviewed Malala Yousafzai after the screening of "I am Malala," a documentary about the activist's life. It was a delight to watch these two young women hold forth on all the things they are passionate about: education, human rights, feminism. At one point Watson told Malala she had been hesitant to ask her if she identified as a feminist, given the baggage associated with the word. Malala smiled and replied in the affirmative: "Interestingly, this word, feminism, has been a very tricky word. [But] I'm a feminist and you all should be feminists, because feminism is another word for equality." Kudos to Malala for claiming back the word; for being, more significantly, an exemplary model of one: a woman who is confident and comfortable in her skin, someone who instinctively understands that, as Hillary Clinton once said, "women's rights are human rights."
