To celebrate International Women's Day, a bunch of brilliant Australian female authors have dropped their books on trains, trams, buses and ferries in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne.

The line-up of authors include Maxine Beneba Clarke, Nicole Haddow, Kitty Flanagan, Gabbie Stroud, Claire Bowditch, Carly Findlay, Anita Heiss and Jamila Rizvi - each will personally 'leave behind' signed copies of their works for people to find.

Aimed to encourage the public to read books by local female talent, the campaign is being conducted by Books on the Rail, an organisation that, you guessed it, leaves books on public transport. In other words, they're just the greatest.

Books on the Rail was founded by Aussie authors Ali Berg and Michelle Kalus in 2016. See more about their amazing initiatives, here
