Emma Watson Was a 'Ninja Book-Fairy' on International Women's Day
Emma Watson had the coolest idea on International Women’s Day!
Earlier this week, the 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast actress left some of her favorite books around the streets of New York City.
Emma partnered with Book Fairies and placed the books – with her handwritten notes inside them – at monuments that celebrate women’s accomplishments.
“Today I’m a red-striking ninja book-fairy out to spread some wise women’s words,” Emma shared on Instagram along with the photo below. “Happy International Women’s Day! @bookfairiesworldwide #IWDOurSharedShelf #IWD #ADayWithoutAWoman.”
Some spots she visited were the Harriet Tubman Memorial, the Joan of Arc Memorial, the Gertrude Stein statue, and the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument.
