"7 Feminist Take-Aways From the Final Harry Potter Movie" is a MUST READ

Hermione Granger
The title should say a must read for feminists, and Harry Potter fans, well...that should include EVERYONE. Feminism is for men, women, the trans community and everyone!!!! That being said please read it located here from @msmagazine

I love following Ms Magazine on Twitter because they always have something interesting to say or something to make me thing or want to get involved. That being said I am fan of Harry Potter. I loved and read the books as they came out taking in all the words from every page from the 7 books telling the story of Harry and his friends in their journey to destroy Lord Voldermort.

I love the piece from Ms Magazine because not only is it current as Harry Potter 7.2 just came out but because it will give people another way to look at the films. They also have another piece with Hermione as a feminist shero and I would totally agree as she is smart, talented and vocal about the changes she wants to see and takes action and while not perfect (no one is) she does her best.

Prof Minerva McGonagall
Please follow them and see the last film. An end of a chapter in my life serves as a beginning. I can take lessons of Hermione, Ginny, Mrs. Weasley, Lily Potter, Professor Minerva McGonagall, Tonks, Harry, Ron and the rest of the characters dead or alive, past or present and use them to fight the Voldermorts of the worlds. They can no long be He Who Must Not Be Named. Let's call them out. Let's end racism, sexism, heterosexism, patriarchy, heteropatriarchy, homophobia, xenoophobia, transphobia, classism, and oppression of all types.
