Watson was lensed by Kerry Hallihan for the cover shoot, telling the magazine in an exclusive interview: "Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It's not prescriptive, it's not dogmatic," adding: "All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for President, you can. If you don't, that's wonderful, too."
