Emma Watson is starting a feminist bookclub and we'd like a membership, thanks

Because books and cleverness are still important

Emma Watson is starting up a feminist bookclub and she's been asking her fans to offer up some suggestions on what it should officially be called. 

Seeing as Emma has done loads of incredibly cool things for gender equality in the past few years - including launching the #HeForShe campaign, speaking up about how sexism is still a problem in the workplace, and even inspiring Malala Yousafzai to call herself a feminist, it's no surprise that she's pretty well read on the subject.

But in true Hermione fashion, Emma has acknowledged that there are never too many books you can read on a topic and, on that principle, has set up her own club where people can mutually share their favourite feminist novels with each other.

After receiving predictably LOADS of suggestions on what the club should be called, Emma eventually settled on naming it 'Our Shared Shelf' and has even extended invitations on Twitter to both JK Rowling and Taylor Swift. 

We're not quite sure just how exclusive the club is going to be, but we'd like to announce that we already have a feminist book-list all prepared and will be patiently waiting in the library until everyone turns up.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know with a tweet @sugarscape or drop us a comment in the box below.
