Emma zal samen met enkele andere feministen een nieuwe plattegrond maken voor de metro in Londen, de namen van station’s zullen vervangen worden voor belangrijke feministen en vrouwen. Dit zal gepubliceerd worden door Haymarket Books tijdens de internationale vrouwendag volgend jaar maart. Eerder is al een soortelijk project geweest voor de metrokaart van New York City.

Londoners Reni Eddo-Lodge and Emma Watson are collaborating with author Rebecca Solnit and geographer Joshua Jelly-Schapiro to reimagine London’s classic Tube map. The new public history project ‘City of London Women’ will redraw the classic London Underground map by naming each stop after a woman, non-binary person or a group.

The project is inspired by Solnit and Jelly-Schapiro’s acclaimed book Nonstop Metropolis, in which they reworked the New York City subway map to celebrate women who had made their mark on the city. The map then became an iconic poster and sparked numerous conversations about public space, history, gender, feminism, and memory. In 2019, the independent publisher Haymarket Books released a new version of the map with a revised list of station stops. Writing about the second edition of the map, Solnit said:

‘How does it impact our imaginations that so many places in so many cities are named after men and so few after women? What kind of landscape do we move through when streets and parks and statues and bridges are gendered … and it’s usually one gender, and not another? What kind of silence arises in places that so seldom speak of and to women? This map was made to sing the praises of the extraordinary women who have, since the beginning, been shapers and heroes of this city that has always been, secretly, a City of Women. And why not the subway? This is a history still emerging from underground, a reminder that it’s all connected, and that we get around.’

Now Solnit and Schapiro are partnering with London residents award-winning writer Reni Eddo-Lodge (author of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race) and actor and activist Emma Watson to create the City of Women London, using Transport for London’s iconic Tube map.

This offering is inspired by all the women and non-binary people who have shaped London’s history, as well as other projects that have already done much to re-imagine the city from a similar perspective. The contributors would particularly like to acknowledge previous reworkings of the London Underground map, such as We Apologise for the Delay to Your Journey by Thick/er Black Lines, the Literary Tube Map by In the Book, and other similar projects. The City of Women map hopes to further contribute to the way London is imagined, navigated, and lived.

The project is being launched in partnership with The WOW Foundation, which was founded by Jude Kelly CBE in 2010, when the first WOW – Women of the World Festival took place at London’s Southbank Centre. In 2018 Kelly founded The WOW Foundation to run the global movement as an independent charity. Through WOW festivals, events, schools programmes and more, WOW challenges the belief that gender equality has already been achieved – and hopes to join the dots between people, movements and ideas to change the world.

The creators of City of Women London will work with the WOW community, historians, writers, curators, community organisers, museums, and librarians, as well as crowdsourcing ideas from the public, to create the final map.

Haymarket Books will publish the project on International Women’s Day 2021, 8 March.

So many remarkable women and non-binary people have made their mark in the greater London area, the list of possible station names is dizzying: Ada Lovelace, April Ashley, Altheia Jones-LeCointe, Amy Winehouse, Bushra Nasir, Claudia Jones, Hannah Dadds, Jackie Forster, Jayaben Desai, Jenny Sealey, Jung Chang, the Match Girls, Mary Prince, Mary Seacole, Mary Wollstonecraft, Noor Inayat Khan, Paris Lees, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Sophia Duleep Singh, Tessa Sanderson, Virginia Woolf, Yvette Williams, Zadie Smith, and beyond.

We will never think of the Tube — or public space — the same way again.

Projecten

Emma heeft met Vogue Magazine een interview gehad over haar keuze om in de raad van bestuur van Kering te stappen.

he actor tells Vogue her hopes to create a more sustainable future for the fashion industry — and how the pandemic has given her a chance to reflect on how she can create meaningful change away from the screen.

Since rising to fame in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson has become as well known for her work off screen as on it. The actor was appointed a UN Women goodwill ambassador in 2014, with the star urging men to stand up for gender equality in her famous HeForShe speech at the UN headquarters that year. She’s also played a leading role in the TIME’S UP movement that began in 2018, calling for an end to sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Now, Watson has added a new role to the list, joining the board of directors at Gucci owner Kering. The 30-year-old will be chair of the board’s sustainability committee — a fitting position for the actor, who has long had an interest in eco-friendly fashion.

“For me, sustainability is about the effects of today’s actions on our shared future,” Watson tells Vogue. “As the youngest member of Kering’s board, I hope to influence decisions that will impact future generations and the world that we leave them.”

Watson has regularly flown the flag for sustainable fashion on the red carpet, wearing a Calvin Klein dress made from recycled plastic bottles at the 2016 Met Gala and opting for only eco-friendly choices during her Beauty and the Beast press tour in 2017. She’s also a supporter of the Good On You app, which rates how ethical brands are, and guest-edited Vogue Australia’s sustainability issue in 2018.

It makes sense, then, that she’s now joining forces with Kering — which has become known for its sustainability efforts within the fashion industry. The company announced it would be going carbon neutral across its own operations and supply chain last year, and spearheaded the G7 Fashion Pact that’s seen 65 brands agree to commitments on mitigating climate change, improving biodiversity, and protecting our oceans.

Here, we caught up with Watson to find out more about her new role at Kering and what sustainable fashion means to her.

Emma is in 2017 een investeringsmaatschappij genaamd Hestia Hebe begonnen, ze zou ongeveer 75% van de aandelen van het bedrijf bezitten. Het bedrijf zelf is vernoemd naar de Griekse godinnen van de huiselijke haard en jeugd.

Projecten

Emma is lid geworden van de raad van bestuur van Kering. Voor de aankondigd werd een nog niet verschenen outtake van Emma door Carter Bowen uit 2016 gebruikt.

Opvallend bericht uit de modewereld. Actrice en activiste Emma Watson zal voortaan zetelen in de raad van bestuur van Kering, de tweede grootste luxegroep ter wereld.

Emma Watson wordt aan boord gehaald om Kering, eigenaar van onder meer Balenciaga, Gucci en Saint Laurent, een groener imago te geven. De dertigjarige actrice houdt zich namelijk ook bezig met duurzame mode. Zo is ze het gezicht van de app Good On You, die merken rangschikt volgens hun ethische en duurzaamheidskenmerken, en draagt ze zelf zo vaak mogelijk ecologische mode op de rode loper. Daarnaast is ze ook nog eens VN-goodwillambassadeur.

“Emma Watson is een van de populairste actrices en bekendste activistes wereldwijd”, motiveert Kering de beslissing. De in Parijs geboren Britse krijg naast haar plaats in de raad van bestuur van de luxegroep ook de functie van voorzitter van de duurzaamheidscommissie toebedeeld. Zij moet daarmee deels Stella McCartney vervangen, de modeontwerpster en specialiste ter zake die begin dit jaar de overstap maakte naar concurrent LVMH.

“Indrukwekkende talenten”
Naast Watson vervoegen ook zakenman Tidjane Thiam en ondernemer Jean Liu de raad van bestuur van Kering. “De collectieve intelligentie die vanuit verschillende standpunten komt en de rijkdom aan diverse ervaringen zijn cruciaal voor de toekomst van onze organisatie. Ik ben er trots op dat ik zulke indrukwekkende talenten aan het team kan toevoegen”, zegt CEO François-Henri Pinault in een mededeling.

Emma heeft aangekondigd een andere richting op te gaan met haar boekclub ‘Our Shared Shelf’. On de onderstaande bericht laat Emma weten dat ze meer tijd gaan nemen op zich te richten of persoonlijke en professionele kansen. Dit houd in dat ze geen tijd meer heeft om ‘Our Shared Shelf’ forum bij te houden en vanaf nu nieuwe boeken zal aanbevelen via instagram met de hashtag #oursharedshelf. Ze zal niet meer elke twee maanden een boek aanbeveling via het forum zoals ze hiervoor deed. Het forum zal open blijven voor fans zodat iedereen elkaar boeken kan aanraden of dit ook met de hashtag #oursharedshelf op instagram doen.

Our Shared Shelf was a title dreamed up by YOU, all of the amazing individuals who support and contribute to creating conversations around intersectionality, feminism and equal rights. It was important to me that Our Shared Shelf was not owned by me, but indeed, SHARED! You offered me the perfect title, and I have been astonished, humbled and filled with gratitude by how shared it has felt, with over a million people all over the world now active in the club. To those who’ve written long thoughtful threads, to the incredible authors who’ve answered Our Shared Shelf questions, to the hundreds of people globally who’ve hidden feminist titles alongside me over these last three years, you’ve made my wishes come true; I am truly part of the greatest feminist ninja gang the world has ever seen! Most importantly a massive THANK YOU for being part of my little piece of mischief. To sum up all that I have learned from this community would be an impossible task.

Circling back to the title for a moment. It annoyed me that Our Shared Shelf was constantly abbreviated to “O.S.S.”. The same letters (different order) as the international symbol for distress! However, over the years the three letters have developed their own beautiful meaning for me. This book club initially was my own kind of distress signal! Life, it turns out, can be difficult to navigate. We are often caught in the storm and lost at sea. The journey to becoming an independent thinker, activist and mischief maker is treacherous! OSS was my distress signal and call for help – and it came! It has become a beacon and guiding light. If you know someone sending out a jumbled distress signal, please pass on or tell them about OSS. Activism and change making can feel lonely. This is your tribe, this is your collective consciousness and we are raising it together.

At the beginning of every new year, and particularly so now as it is the beginning of a new decade, I’ve been prompted to look at my next steps. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking! First of all Happy 2020, it’s going to be an amazing year for all of you. This year I want to focus my energy on some new personal and professional opportunities and while I want to say YES to everything – it’s IMPOSSIBLE.

What does this mean? Moving forward the OSS board will be unmoderated but remain open keeping intact all previous conversations. I will not be making the regular bi-monthly book announcement via the board, I will be making future book recommendations through Instagram using the hashtag #oursharedshelf instead. My wish is that this community continues to share and announce their own book recommendations with this hashtag keeping what we’ve built together alive and well for the future. I am excited to see it continue to grow and mature. I might just be reading along with you! Keep your eyes peeled as I announce other books later this year.

Love

Emma

Emmma is voor de duur van tenminste 3 jaar aangewezen als Associate Fellow bij de Lady Margaret Hall van Oxford Universiteit. Wat deze nieuwe rol precies inhoud is mij niet bekend. De afgelopen periode bezocht Emma de universiteit meerdere malen om over gelijkheid in geslacht en vrouwenrechten te praten.

LMH is delighted to announce the appointment of nine new Visiting Fellows for a three year term (2019-22), and the appointment of Emma Watson as an Associate Fellow.

The Visiting Fellows are people drawn from a variety of backgrounds, callings and professions who will form a bridge between LMH’s academic community and the worlds they inhabit and represent. We are most grateful to our previous Visiting Fellows (2016-19) who contributed so much insight, knowledge and understanding within their specialist fields and culturally enhanced the life of the College.

As an Associate Fellow, Emma Watson, will continue her valuable work with the College with particular emphasis on promoting gender equality and women’s rights. Emma was previously an LMH Visiting Fellow (2016-19).

The idea of having non-academic visiting fellows at an Oxford College is not entirely new. Lord Nuffield, in founding his own College, wanted people drawn from government, politics, civil service and other institutions to play a role in the life of Nuffield College.

Names were canvassed from LMH’s governing body, of people of distinction whom we admired and whom we felt could add to the intellectual and cultural life of LMH. Those appointed span subject areas including: environment, sport, history, the performing arts, literature, feminism, law and public service.

Alan Rusbridger, Principal of LMH, said: “We welcome all our new Visiting Fellows and Emma Watson who has now been appointed an Associate Fellow. We look forward to them contributing to the life of LMH and to debate, perform, challenge and otherwise engage with the fellows, tutors, staff and students.

“We can learn much from them and we hope they treasure their time with us.”
