Wizards are kinda kicking our Muggle butts in terms of gender equality, as evidenced by the fact that Hogwarts has an equal number of men and women on its staff, gender is irrelevant on Quidditch teams, and women have been prominent in politics for CENTURIES.
With that in mind (as well some recent “this patriarchy is gross AF” events), we couldn’t resist imagining the ways in which the signature traits of each Hogwarts house would play into how they express their feminism.
We asked the exceptionally talented @taryndraws to illustrate our Hogwarts feminists, and we are in absolute AWE of how perfect they are. Sexist a#*holes, run for cover, because these brilliant, fierce women are COMIN’ FOR YA.
Here are all the houses for some of my newest wands. I will be working on more tonight using semi-precious stones such as: Amzonite, amethyst, Carnelian, Citrine, Rose quartz, snowflake obsidian, and Jasper.
