This book explores the sexism inherent in the Harry Potter series, books in which a hero and his male friends are the focus and center of activity and the female characters are passive enablers--at best. Using critical discourse analysis and focusing on five themes (rule following/breaking, intelligence, validating/enabling, mothering, and resistance), the author explores the construction of traditional gender roles throughout the books. She concludes with a discussion of the implications for development of school curricula that enable students to critically deconstruct these texts.
From the Publisher:
Uses critical discourse analysis, feminist theory, and critical theory to examine the female characters in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, focusing on such themes as validating/enabling, intelligence, and mothering.
