While a huge majority of the world is still in disbelief from the results of the US Elections, actress Emma Watson has already taken her stance by putting more effort into her advocacies.

The actress, who has recently been leaving books in subways via the Books Underground movement, has posted on Twitter: “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.”

Emma is currently the United Nations’ Women Goodwill Ambassador, and has been tirelessly working  towards gender equality by supporting the HeForShe campaign. In her speech during its launch, she professed that she was a feminist, saying “If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled…

“Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong…”

For many, the victory of Republican candidate Donald Trump has cast a dark shadow on gender equality, coming on the heels of the controversial audio wherein he was recorded being vulgar and bragging about sexual assault. He later dismissed the conversation by saying that it was “locker room talk.”

While Emma has yet to directly comment about the election results, she has chosen to be proactive by continuing to leave books in subways, while using her influence to rally for women's rights. Recently, she retweeted a quote from writer Maya Angelou posted by Books on the Subway: “Hate—It has caused a lot of problems in this world, but it has not solved one yet.”
