At the MTV Movie and TV Awards on Sunday, Emma Watson took to the red carpet to share a powerful political message.

And she did it without saying a word.

For the event, Watson chose to wear a stunning, one-shoulder sequined dress that definitely made a fashion statement...

(The sheer-shouldered dress was designed by Australian eco-luxury brand, Kitx.)

...but it turns out her dress made a political statement, as well:

Can you spot the hidden message?

See that little blue ampersand pinned to her waist? That's from GLAAD.

GLAAD is a group that fights for basic rights for the LGBTQ+ and marginalized community.

Watson chose to wear the symbol as a way to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.

Watson — who's basically an IRL Disney princess — constantly uses her platform to speak up for causes she believes in.

She even wore the ampersand on stage to accept her award for best movie actor  —  which happened to be presented in a gender-free category for the first time.

Too perfect. 

Watson acknowledged the groundbreaking moment in her acceptance speech.

She began:
"The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes. And that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories."

Adding to the feelings, Millie Bobby Brown of "Stranger Things" also joined in on the ampersand action.

The actress also included an American Civil Liberties Union ribbon to her outfit.

Watson certainly knows how to make a statement.

She's making a difference one speech — and one outfit — at a time.
