Summary
"This book explores the sexism inherent in the Harry Potter series and explains how traditional gender constructions of both men and women are common throughout the series. Utilizing critical discourse analysis and the foundations of feminist epistemology, Ruthann Mayes-Elma demonstrates how a hero and his male friends are the focus and center of activity and the female characters are enablers at best."--BOOK JACKET
