Emma Watson Is Hiding Feminist Books On The Train

This is SO Hermione.

Public transportation in London just got a lot more awesome.

Emma Watson wrote on Instagram Tuesday that she’s been hiding copies of “Mom & Me & Mom,” the seventh book in Maya Angelou’s series of autobiographies, around the London tube.

“See if you can find one tomorrow!” the “Harry Potter” star wrote.

”Mom & Me & Mom” is the latest recommendation in Watson’s feminist book club, called Our Shared Shelf. The club, which kicked off in January with Gloria Steinem’s “On The Road,” is open to anyone who wants to join, which they can do through Goodreads.

Our Shared Self’s Instagram account recently shared a photo from a lucky reader who found one of the hidden books.

Watson has emerged as a prominent activist for gender equality in recent years. As a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, the actress serves as the face of the UN Women’s initiative HeForShe, which launched in 2014 with the goal of engaging men in the fight for women’s equality around the world.

Outspoken about her beliefs, Watson has said she’s not going to be stopped by people calling her dumb names like “feminazi.”

“Call me whatever you want,” she said in a March interview with Esquire. “It’s not going to stop me from trying to do the right thing and make sure that the right thing happens.”
