Wonderwall Logo By By Jen Odell of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 10: Having amassed more than 11 million views of her <a href="http://www.wonderwall.com/movies/emma-watson-and-leonardo-dicaprio-draw-attention-to-the-united-nations-1839911.story">first HeForShe speech</a>, <a href="http://www.wonderwall.com/movies/the-shortlist-for-july-8-29567.gallery?photoId=139874">UN Women Goodwill Ambassador</a> Emma Watson addressed the issue of gender equality and equal pay for equal work again this week at the World Economic Forum at Davos. She used the opportunity to launch a new step in the campaign called Impact 10x10x10. "It's about engaging governments, businesses and universities, and having them make concrete commitments to gender equality," Watson said, according to <a href="http://jezebel.com/emma-watson-at-davos-womens-potential-astonishingly-un-1681334905">Jezebel</a>. "While I would love to believe that this campaign and the results of it are the results of my incredible speechwriting skills, I know that it is not. It is because the ground is fertile. It is my belief that there is a greater understanding than ever that women need to be equal participants in our homes, in our societies, in our governments, and our workplaces — and they know that the world is being held back, in every way, because they are not. Women share this planet 50/50, and they are underrepresented, their potential astonishingly untapped."
