This is the incredible moment Emma Watson Meets Malala Yousafzai for the first time.

The meeting took place at the Into Film Festival in anticipation of the release of the Nobel Prize laureate’s film, He Named Me Malala, tomorrow.

Emma Watson took to her Facebook account to air the footage from the encounter, where the Harry Potter star is quite visibly in awe of her interviewee.

The footage has been met with an overwhelmingly positive response by those who have viewed it, also striking up a healthy debate over the use of the word ‘feminist’.

Valid points, but it is hard to argue that the world wouldn’t be a better place with a few more Watsons and Malalas.
