This week, we finally get to chapter 15 of OotP, "The Hogwarts High Inquisitor," in which the Ministry passes middle of the night legislative action to give one of their own, Dolores Umbridge, oversight power for an independent educational institution: Hogwarts. Of course, we find this super problematic. Also problematic? The complex nature of reporting abuse, especially within systems that aren't the most survivor-friendly ones.

The patriarchy, as always, is a strong presence in our discussion.
