In the grand scheme of things, Emma Watson continues to use her platform for good and is now working with Reni Eddo-Lodge to help honor women and non-binary people in London.

Both Emma Watson and author Reni Eddo-Lodge have taken to honoring the work of women and non-binary people throughout the London tube. In a move mirroring that of what many have done in New York City, the two are working to rename stops after these incredible people.

The project is created to honor those women and non-binary people in that local area and how they have impacted the city in which they live in. Plus, it’s a wonderful way to pay homage to those who have paved the way for future generations in a beautiful ode.

It’s a great addition to the city while also honoring those who deserve our credit. With so many wanting to tear down racist statues (rightfully) and replace them with people who deserve the recognition, things like this are a wonderful way of taking a step in the right direction.

Redi Eddo-Lodge spoke with The Guardian about the project and how she is working with Emma Watson to share the stores of these incredible women and non-binary Londoners who have helped to change London for the better.

"The project aims to identify remarkable female or non-binary Londoners who have had an impact on the city’s history in some way. It will allocate them to each of the stations depicted on the London [T]ube map according to their connections to a local area. Some of these people might be household names, [while] others might be unsung heroes or figures from London’s hidden histories. The names might be drawn from arts, civil society, business, politics, sport and so on."

It’s an amazing project and one that other large cities should adopt because honoring women and non-binary people who have helped to build our cities is incredibly important.
