Emma Watson Spent #IWD Hiding Feminist Books in NY

Many people (including celebrities) celebrated International Women’s Day yesterday by striking, wearing red, or protesting.

Emma Watson took a creative approach, hiding feminist books around New York City for people to find.

The Beauty and the Beast star partnered with Book Fairies to hide books at statues of iconic women around New York, documenting her incognito journey on Twitter.

“Today I’m a red-striking ninja book-fairy out to spread some wise women’s words,” she tweeted alongside a selfie of her holding a book. She also visited the Harriet Tubman memorial, the Joan of Arc memorial, the Gertrude Stein statue, and Eleanor Roosevelt’s monument delivering books.

One lucky fan caught her delivering books to Blue Stockings bookstore, and got a hug from book-lover (red-clad) Hermione herself.

Book fairies hid books around the world yesterday as well to celebrate.

Thank you for all that you do to promote equal rights, Emma! (And readers: keep your eyes PEELED.)
