This book explores the sexism inherent in the Harry Potter series & explains how traditional gender constructions of both men & women are common throughout the series. Utilizing critical discourse analysis & the foundations of feminist epistemology, it demonstrates how a hero & his male friends are the focus & center of activity & the female characters are enablers at best. Passive & invisible female characters exist only as bodies in the Harry Potterseries, bound by traditional gender conventions; they resist evil, but never gender stereotypes.
