Emma Watson tried to put some of the drama about her feminism behind her on Wednesday. Celebrating International Women’s Day and the Day Without A Woman strike, Emma took to the streets of New York to leave free books in public spaces.
Emma shared pics and videos as she was left books by Gloria Steinem and other women authors at statues of famous leaders and thinkers like Harriet Tubman, Joan of Arc, Gertrude Stein and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Emma was part of a new movement called The Book Fairies, which is a new international program to leave free books for interested readers around the world. Emma has been leaving her own reading suggests around the world vigilante-style for a while now.
Check out pics and videos from Emma’s strike day below, plus posts from The Book Fairies, including the handwritten note Emma’s been writing in books she’s hiding.
