Emma Watson debuts a very political tattoo at the Oscars after-party

Spelling it out

Emma Watson recently announced her plan to bring the #TimesUp movement to the UK. And at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday night, she spelled out this mission with a brand new Time’s Up tattoo.

It’s not clear whether the tatt is a permanent or temporary one, but the lettering was clearly visible on Watson’s right forearm as she posed for cameras outside the party in a sleeveless Ralph Lauren dress.

Watson was one of many prominent British celebrities to sign a letter ahead of the BAFTAs calling for a #TimesUp justice fund to protect women from sexual harassment and discrimination.

‘We invite you to join us in donating to the new UK justice and equality fund’ went the letter published in The Guardian, ‘to spread the word to others and be a catalyst for change. Everyone can make a difference by using your platform, your voice and your power as a changemaker.’

To kick off the fundraising drive, Watson personally donated £1 million to the cause.
