Emma Watson has defended her right to bare her boobs after being slammed for posing partially topless in the magazine Vanity Fair.

The prominent feminist, 26, was criticised by broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer, who tweeted: “Feminism, feminism . . .  gender wage gap . . . why oh why am I not taken seriously . . . feminism . . . oh, and here are my t*ts!”.

But the Harry Potter star defended her magazine pose saying: “They were claiming that I couldn’t be a feminist and have boobs. Feminism is about giving women choice.

“Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with.”

“It’s about freedom. It’s about liberation. It’s about equality.”

“I really don’t know what my t*ts have to do with it.”

Here, three staunch feminists agree with Emma and show their boobs with pride.

Sharron Foster, 46, a jewellery designer and divorced mum of two, of Plymouth, says:

“I live by the beach and I’ll happily swim in a bikini and often go topless on holiday in a warm country – why should that mean I can’t also be a feminist? That’s simply ludicrous.

Being a feminist means making your own choices and doing what you feel is right for you.

I do not care what men or even other women think in terms of how I dress or what I choose to do because if you live by the opinion of others you only devalue your own. As a jewellery designer I am financially independent, I make all my own decisions and hope I am an excellent role model to both my five-year-old son, James, and 19-year-old daughter, Sophia.

I have always tried to raise my daughter to believe that all women should feel empowered to follow their desires.

Posing topless, for example, is not an incitement to being touched. Are men really so little in control of themselves?

People who criticise Emma Watson for her Vanity Fair photo are only projecting their own prejudice on to her.”
