Little (feminist) things that make me happy

It seems that Emma Watson’s HeForShe campaign speech reached quite a few people, not only her fans but also colleagues in the film business. When I looked through my Twitter feed this morning, I stumbled upon this post, and it made me smile:

 

I’m a huge fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, so seeing him wearing this t-shirt and declaring himself a feminist made me very, very happy.
