"I have been living my life on and off film sets for 23 years. The VAST majority of these sets, had me as a young woman, looking past the lens of the camera and seeing a sea of men's eyes looking back at me," Watson shared via Instagram. "For my directorial debut, I wanted that to change. The majority of the team I worked with on this campaign were women. And it was a wonderful thing."
