A controversy over showing part of her breasts by Emma
Emma has a banana body type, a petite figure with a medium height of 5’5″, slim waist, small breasts (32A bra size), and contracted hips. Despite her innocent appearance, Emma is a sex symbol for many of her fans. In 2005, Emma kick-started her modeling career. She posed for many famous magazines. A debate started on Emma’s decision to exposing part of her boobs on a photoshoot at Vanity Fair. She describes herself as a feminist, as Emma entered into activism in 2014 when she was appointed U.N. Goodwill Ambassador for the work of women empowerment and to promote educational equality globally. In Emma’s words, women are sexualized. She said that it was a misunderstanding. The accusations calling her anti-feminist are wrong. Baring breast doesn’t mean not being a feminist. She said that men also expose their nipples on photoshoots.
Emma has done too much for young girls and women. There is no way to criticize Emma on the bare breast issue. Women will continue to face these controversies by the male communities.
