Emma Watson Shares Her Strategy for Dealing With the Election Results
While Wednesday felt like a day of mourning for many (and a day of celebration for others), one person is already thinking about her next move and is acting on it: Emma Watson.
The actress, activist, and UN Women global goodwill ambassador revealed how she's handling the results of Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton, and it's something to aspire to. Like many other women watching the electoral votes roll in with horror at the prospect of a Trump regime led by a self-proclaimed sexual abuser who worry that many of the nonprofit organizations for women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, people with disabilities, and the planet will be threatened, Watson is aware that the fight starts now.

"Today I am going to deliver Maya Angelou books to the New York subway," she tweeted, which isn't exactly a first for her — earlier in the month she hid books in London's Tube stations. "Then I am going to fight even harder for all the things I believe in." No doubt that will include speaking up for women's rights, as she's done so eloquently in the past for the UN.
