Actress Emma Watson’s U.N. speech on gender equality is all the buzz online, but for the wrong reasons.

“To date, I’ve seen my father’s role being valued less by society despite my needing his presence as a child as much as my mother’s,” she said.

She praised men again later in the speech, saying men are victims of inequality too, “imprisoned by gender stereotypes” of aggression, macho-ness and control.

It was fitting–but unexpected–that she chose to highlight how society’s unrealistic expectations for men are important too.

“It is time that both men and women feel free to be sensitive. It is that time that both men and women feel free to be strong,” Watson said.

Unfortunately, she only briefly touched on what is perhaps the greatest injustice to women on earth–gendercide.

“My life is a sheer privilege because my parents didn’t love me less because I was born a daughter,” said Watson.
