"History of Magic needs to teach more WITCH history and less WIZARD history."
—A female Hogwarts student states her belief that the History of Magic curriculum is too male-centric.[src]

Feminism is a philosophy which holds women should have political, social, and economic rights equal to men's.[1]

Minerva McGonagall was "always something of a feminist."[2] When she announced she would be keeping her maiden name after marrying Elphinstone Urquart, traditionalists reacted with disapproval, wondering why she did not want to take the surname of a pure-blood family and give up the surname of her Muggle father.[2]
