Whatever your position on politics and sexism, you can't argue with Emma Watson's stand for what's right.

Turkish politician Bulent Arinc recently made offensive - and ridiculous - comments that it is haram ('forbidden') for women to LAUGH in public:

A woman will know what is haram and not haram. She will not laugh out loud in public.

Tell it, Hermione.

Luckily, Emma Watson - and a whole bunch of other women - struck back at Arinc's ludicrous comments. Their tactic? Show Arinc, and anyone else with backward views that laughter is the best medicine...

Good on you, Emma Watson. Don't ever let anyone tell you you're less of a person because of how your were born. And if they do? Laugh in their face.
