“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams doesn’t get Emma Watson’s “first-world feminism”

"The assertion that the inequalities that persist in the UK and United States “don’t bother her” is a milder version of women against feminism rejecting the progress wrought by the women’s movement only as they bask in it. It’s a form of privilege not to be bothered by pay inequality, restricted reproductive healthcare access, rape culture and institutional sexism; it is also a form of privilege to create a hierarchy of problems that disregards some, when all of the problems need to be fixed."
