As we've all come to know and laugh at, third-wave feminism is rife with glaring inconsistencies and double standards. One of the many tricky questions still tripping up feminists today is if showing your boobs is empowering or demeaning.

Watson pushed back on the idea that exposing the bottom half of her breasts in a recent Vanity Fair cover shoot is somehow contradictory or harmful to feminism (image below). The Beauty and the Beast star explained that exposing her breasts was empowering because it was her "choice" to show off the girls.
