AskMen has placed actress Emma Watson at the top of its list of the Top 99 Outstanding Women, citing her work on the United Nationsâ€™ HeforShe campaign as a â€śnoble pursuit.â€ť
The menâ€™s website says their list celebrates women who are both beautiful and remarkable within their industries. MMA fighter Ronda Rousey clocks in at No. 2 on the list, and Kim Kardashian rounds out the top three. Laverne Cox was named No. 16, and though the list is heavy on actresses, there are plenty of spaces for athletes, from Alex Morgan to Lindsey Vonn.
Publisher James Bassil called Watson â€śrich, successful, famous, stylish, beautiful, intelligent, personable, kind,â€ť yet emphasized that she has â€śthrown her backâ€ť into the issue of feminism.
