The objectives of this research were 1) to find out the kinds of speech acts employed in Emma Watson’s HeForShe, 2) to find out the types of arrangement of classical rhetoric speech in the delivery of Emma Watson’s HeForShe. This study applied a descriptive-qualitative research which comprehensively analyzed a specific language phenomenon. The object of this study was all utterances spoken by Emma Watson in her speech about gender equality in the UN General Assembly meeting in 20 September 2014. The data were in the form of words, phrases, and utterances uttered by Emma in her speech. The speech transcript, and the data sheets were also employed as supporting instruments. The researcher has the role of planning, collecting, analyzing, and reporting the research finding. Watching the video of the speech, finding the transcript, making data sheets, categorizing and analyzing the data were done during the data collection. Furthermore, the credibility, dependability and conformability were used to check the trustwothiness of the data. The research findings are divided into two parts. The first part is about the kinds of speech acts especially in the form of illocutionary acts. Surprisingly all kinds of illocutionary acts such as declaration, representative, commissive, directive and expressive were seen in the speech. However, representative was the most frequent act with 69 occurrences. It was mostly performed in informing with 49 occurrences. The condition in the UN was very formal and the audience who attended the meeting was highly educated and politically powerful. It is needed for Emma to be careful so that the audience would not feel offended because she addressed the sensitive issue. Therefore, she would rather give bias information in her speech. The total of illocutionary acts was 90 occurrences. It outnumbered the total sentence because one sentence can perform more than one speech acts. This is a proof that the speech was very effective. The second finding was about the types of the arrangement of classical rhetoric. All elements were seen except the division because Emma wanted to make her speech more efficient. Proof came as the most frequent with 25 occurrences which is showing that she put more focus on her logical and emotional explanations so that the audience could accept her arguments. In conclusion, the speech was categorized as the effective speech because of the choice of powerful words, sentence structures and expressions to convey her intended meanings and logically appealing reasoning
