Why Mrs Weasley is My Role Model
[Who is your favorite female character in Harry Potter? The brilliant and fearless Hermoine Granger? Well, what about the unflappable Mrs Weasley? Krystie Lee Yandoli at The Frisky explains why the unheralded mom is her feminist heroine.--Mona]
Like Molly Weasley, my mom stayed at home, but redefined the traditional role in her own ways. She’s never failed to encourage my progressive thoughts, urging me to pursue my most radical opinions over a cup of Lipton tea and piece of homemade bread pudding. My mom raised my siblings and I to never assume just because she stays home with us all day, she’s responsible for doing the dishes after dinner—my brother, sister, and I are very familiar with a sponge and dishwasher detergent.
