‘Lean in Together’ Video: Emma Watson Praises Sofia Coppola, & Other Great Feminist Tributes

Women stand together to make the world a better place.

Lean In Together

“Behind every successful woman is another successful woman,” says the video for the new campaign “Lean In” by LeanIn.Org and AOL’s MAKERS, to celebrate the power of women supporting each other and the amazing things that happen when they do.

In the minute-and-a-half video, celebrities like Emma Watson, Lena Dunham, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and more thank the women who have helped them along the way and encouraged them to go further.

Sofia Coppola, she supported by work and she made me believe that I could do more,” says Watson, who worked with the helmer on “The Bling Ring.”

“Girls” creator, Dunham, praised her collaborator Jenni Konner, while “Scandal” star Washington, stated, “I’m not really sure what my life would look like without Shonda Rhimes.”

The video really hopes that together women can get to equality, raise their voices, stand up to anything and anyone and get to a better place.
