13 Harry Potter Tweets That Will Soothe Your Feminist Soul 13 Harry Potter Tweets That Will Soothe Your Feminist Soul Cover photo courtesy of Bustle It’s Harry Potter’s 20 year anniversary today and we’re feeling both nostalgic and appreciative for the wonder woman that is JK Rowling. Not only did she capture the imagination of an entire generation, but she also created a world without gender disparity in the most subtle and nuanced way. Because of this, her female characters came to represent a cast of inspirational women for young millennials reading the potterverse to look up to. And since the Potter’s end Rowling, Emma Watson and co. have become outspoken feminist icons. Indeed, Rowling is now worth an estimated one billion dollars and is one of our most celebrated examples of self made success – (we also happen to adore her blatant negation of gender tropes and passion for calling out misogyny via Twitter). Below we round-up tweets that make for fabulous female reading, between the cast, writers and potter lovers. Happy anniversary to all. @Evy_Lynch You’re a goddess. — J.K.
