The famous British Hollywood actress Emma Watson is famous for her feminist views. She has said that immigrants are not rapists and that they are "welcome" to Europe.
Apparently this has sparked a reaction. A petition has now been created that has been already signed by nearly 24.000.
The petition, that was created by Oscar Izard, from Melbourne in Australia, wants Emma Watson to prove that migrants are not rapists but in fact feminists, by moving in with them for a week in migrant camps in Europe, without any bodyguards to protect her.
"In order to show how safe current migration is to Europe, particularly regarding the cause of feminism (I reject wholeheartedly the notion that North African and Middle Eastern migrants are unsafe, and rapists), Emma Watson should spend a week's holiday in a Calais migrant camp, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro feminism these migrants are." Oscar Izard writes in the petition.
The issue of refugees and the safety of women is a strongly divisive issue following the mass assault of German women in Cologne by 1000 refugees on New Year’s Eve, and in other placesin Europe.
The assault led to the Mayor of Cologne proposing women adopt a “code of conduct” in future to prevent assault, The Independent reports.
