UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson and the face and HeforShe, recently expressed her feelings about Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election. Her message was hopeful; asking the women not to give up, even if the future for women looks bleak in the America under Trump, she isn’t.
Today I am going to deliver Maya Angelou books to the New York subway. Then I am going to fight even harder for all the things I believe in.

Watson previously left copies of Maya Angelou’s autobiographical book Mom and Me and Mom – her feminist book club Our Shared Shelf’s pick for November/December – on the London Underground. Each copy had a handwritten letter from Watson enclosed.
