After she asked asked politicians and business leaders to embrace the initiative, the 24-year-old U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador discussed her plan with fans on Twitter and offers words of wisdom.

One tweet in particular was particularly relevant to Emma's fight for women's empowerment.

"My dad says I can't be a engineer 'cause it's a "men profession" what do I do to change that?" asked the Harry Potter fan.

Emma's response? Pure brilliance.

"Became an engineer," the actress wrote.

And we thought she couldn't get any more inspiring.

During her speech in Davos, Emma said she has been overwhelmed with the response she has received since launching the HeForShe campaign in September.

"I've been stunned by the amount of men in my life that have contacted me since my speech to tell me to keep going, and that they want to make sure that their daughters will still be alive to see a world where women have power and equality, economically and politically," she said.

"I've had my breath taken away when a fan told me since watching my speech she has stopped herself being beaten up by her father. We are tapping into what the world wants: to be a part of change. Now we have to channel that energy into purposeful action."
