5 Most Inspiring Harry Potter Females
So, Emma and I decided that we wanted to collaborate on a post together. We decided on guest posts sharing the most inspiring females from Harry Potter and Disney. I did Disney, and Emma did Harry Potter! If you want to check out who I think the most inspiring females from Disney are, head over to Em’s World.
Harry Potter may be the story of ‘the boy who lived’ but that doesn’t mean it isn’t full of inspiring females! There are a couple that came close to making this list like Minerva McGonagall but I’ve chosen what I think are the 5 most inspiring Harry Potter females.
Luna is my favourite character from the series because she doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. She does what she wants and dresses how she wants which is a rare thing. She may not have many (or any) friends when we first meet her but that doesn’t seem to bother her. She’s always kind and a wonderful friend to Harry and she has such a great outlook on life and the world, even when it’s dark.
Tonks is one of the most fun characters in the series (after Fred and George) and she brings joy and happiness to everyone around her with her shape-shifting. Tonks always follows her heart and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. When Lupin tries to protect her from falling in love with him, she doesn’t take no for an answer. She sacrifices her life for her friends and so that her son, Teddy, can grow up in a Voldemort-free world.
Molly is the mother everyone wants, she’s kind and caring but can also be strict when she needs to be – her howler is one of my favourite scenes in the films! She’s one of the only mothering figures in Harry’s life (along with Professor McGonagall) and she cares for him like he’s her own. She will defend and protect her children by risking her own life and she’s extremely powerful, she would have to be to defeat Bellatrix!
Hermione is such an underrated character in my opinion. She may be annoying to some, but she’s an incredible role model and that can’t be denied. She works hard in school, is loyal to her friends and stands up for what she believes in. One of the things I really wish made it into the films is Hermione’s SPEW (Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) campaign. It really shows how she fights for what she knows is right.
Lily just had to be number one on this list. She made the ultimate sacrifice for her baby and saved him with her love. Harry was known as the boy who lived, but this only happened because of Lily. When she gave her life in his place out of pure love, Voldemort’s killing curse rebounded off Harry which defeated Voldemort temporarily. Because she died willingly to protect her son, she was able to save him which ultimately saved the entire world.
