Emma Watson's Instagram page boasts two pictures of her visit to Uruguay's capital city Montevideo last week, as Women's Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. This marked her first appearance in the UN role, before going to the organization's headquarters in New York later last week and giving a speech in the launch of the new program "HeForShe", for gender equality.

Emma Watson's Instagram feed, not often updated, now shows two photos of the 'Perks of Being a Wildflower' actress visiting the South American country, in her first appearance as a Women's goodwill ambassador for the United Nations. The British actress was announced to be the newest addition to the ambassadors last July, joining Oscar winning fellow actress Nicole Kidman and Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha Mahidol, from Thailand.

While Emma Watson's Instagram didn't show it, after her visit to Montevideo, her week continued to be hectic, as she visited the United Nations headquarters in New York City, where she gave an impassionate speech about gender inequality to help launch the new UN campaign HeForShe, which calls boys and men to action regarding the global issue, as the United Kingdom's newspaper The Telegraph reported. In the meantime, Emma Watson's Instagram account, as well as every other one of her social media accounts featured many people from all over the world congratulating her for her speech.

Even if Emma Watson's Instagram didn't really show the actress' trip to New York, her feminist speech has turned into an Internet phenomenon. The speech features the former Hermione Granger speaking out about how she became a feminist at 8 years old, when she was told she was too "bossy" for wanting to direct a school play - when none of the boys were told the same. The actress made a strong plea to men to join the HeForShe campaign, saying that gender equality was a men's issue too - saying that if the female stereotypes were torn, so would the male ones, allowing men to be as sensitive and true to themselves as possible.
