3. Emma Watson
She was the wonder girl in Harry Potter and in real life, she’s the wonder woman of the charity world. It shouldn’t come as news to anyone that actress Emma Watson is a long-time social activist for women’s rights. She took her cause to the next level when she became the UN ambassador for Goodwill. As part of her volunteer job, she traveled to Malawi to raise global awareness against child marriage in developing countries. She met with women who shared their stories of forced marriages and how they were eventually freed. Her message was “how important it is for women to be able to make their own choices.”
In her trip to Malawi in 2016 she met with schoolgirls who were denied their education due to early marriage. But that’s not all – the actress is one of the biggest philanthropists of the past decade, and that’s only because her young age didn’t allow her to do more sooner! She’s also active in charities helping people who have been harassed, and she donated the sum of 1 million euros to victims of sexual harassment.
