Womany.net & Emma Watson – Subtitles in the Wild

Late last year, at the United Nations, Emma Watson gave an impassioned speech about the launch of HeForShe, a project she’s spearheading along with UN Women. HeForShe calls for everyone to stand behind the concept of gender equality as a human rights issue.

Womany.net recently featured the Watson speech in a blog post and the video has been getting lots of views in Traditional Chinese. The site appears to be Chinese (possibly Taiwanese?) and has some focus on women’s issues.
