Emma Watson Is About to Give Oprah Some Serious Competition

Emma Watson Is About to Give Oprah Some Serious Competition

By Meredith Lepore

If one of your new year's resolutions is to read more, then you're in luck because Emma Watson is starting a book club.

But she's not quite sure what to call it yet, and took to Twitter to get some ideas:

Though The Cut came up with some pretty humorous names (we love Is That Your Feminist Book? It’s Her-MINEy Now Book Club), Watson settled on Twitter user @emilyfabb’s suggestion of Our Shared Shelf. Potential members of the group include Taylor Swift and J.K. Rowling. Whoa. Oprah better watch her back.

This is just Watson's latest move to help promote gender equality. From her game-changing UN speech at the UN about the global HeForShe campaign last year to her kick-ass speech at Davos on the low presence of ladies in the audience, clearly the next step is launching a feminist book club!

"It is my belief that there is a greater understanding than ever that women need to be equal participants in our homes, in our societies, in our governments, and in our work places," Watson said. "Women share this planet 50/50 and they are under-represented, their potential astonishingly untapped."

She is already kicking off the year on a strong note, so we can’t wait to see what happens next.
