If you need a break from this emotionally draining week, Emma Watson has your back. Since her Harry Potter days, Emma has taken on some big roles. Most of them revolving around women’s rights.

So it’s no surprise that Emma Watson would show her support along side Thandie Newton at the premiere of City of Joy.

Emma took a break from hiding books in the NYC subway to rally behind this worthy project. This is yet another display of Watson’s amazing career trajectory.

Emma shares the views of Westworld‘s creators, who encourage strong female characters with modern takes on empowerment and sexuality. Thandie Newton plays one such character, and is therefore a perfect fit to befriend Emma at City of Joy‘s premiere.

Thandie has been outspoken on her social media this week, sending messages of hope and encouragement to those effected by the outcome of the election. Seems like her character Maeve could handle someone testing her.

During a HeForShe event, Emma spoke out about gender issues.

We totally agree with this beautiful sentiment and think Emma (and Thandie) both embody some seriously inspirational #GirlPower.
