More than 10,000 people have signed the petition calling for Emma Watson to spend a week in a migrant camp to show refugees are ‘feminists’.

Oscar Izard Melbourne, the petition founder says he “rejects wholeheartedly the notion that North African and Middle Eastern migrants are unsafe, and rapists.”

The Change.org petition urges Ms Watson to go and “spend a week’s holiday in a Calais migrant camp, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro feminism these migrants are.”

Following the mass sexual assault of women in Cologne, Germany, the issue of refugees and the safety of women has become a strongly divisive issue.
