What could originally be understood as a way of referring to women with a certain double meaning, was interpreted by the public as a salute to “all women”, including trans womenwhich would be a hint from Emma Watson against the author of Harry PotterJK Rowling.

Rowling caused a stir in 2020 after she made comments showing that excludes trans women of the female gender. At the time, even the actor Daniel Radcliffe published the phrase “Transgender women are women” to show your support for that community.
