We've known Emma Watson as an outspoken feminist for quite some time now. She has the UN speeches, equality campaigns and Twitter stream to prove it. Also, let's not forget that she played one of the most badass, game-changing female heroes in literature.
Since we know Emma is rather bookish, we weren't really surprised by her latest femspired move.
Hi Team, I want to start a feminist book club but so far have only brainstormed 'Feminist Book Club' and 'Emma Watson Book Club'.— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) January 6, 2016
I am almost certain there is a more inspiring name out there.... Does anyone have any thoughts ?! #Emma'sBookClub— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) January 6, 2016
Not surprisingly, Twitter was all over that one. Suggestions ranged from "fEMMAnist Book Club" (I see what you did there) to "Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them" and "Watson Your Bookshelf".
In the end, Emma settled on "Our Shared Shelf", suggested by @emilyfabb. And she didn't even listen to our ideas! Nvm, that's what PopBuzz is for.
Here are our suggestions:
Pun game strong.
We know current events.
Get it? Like The Bling Ring? Ok, maybe that one was a bit of a stretch.
This one is less a pun and more an actual request.
We're sure we'll be hearing more about this in the future. We'll keep you posted.
