"Women and girls have always faced hurdles. But that's never stopped us."


So narrates Emma Watson in "Hurdles," her inspirational short film in favor of gender equality. It may not be the latest video on female empowerment, nevertheless, a year after its release, the message rings truer than ever, providing powerful feminist inspiration.


The video features political and societal obstacles women struggled with, and the ones they still have to face today. And it is a rallying cry to people around the world, invited to join the fight for gender equality. 

“There are many huge and high hurdles left to jump. The race is still on. Every day of every year of our lives, but we will cross the finishing line. No one can stop us.” A good message to provide us with the strength and determination to start running again.
