Excerpt:

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Hermione starts, and may very likely pursue, the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare(S.P.E.W.), in an effort to educate others, with a final goal to provide an environment that is fair to all of its members. She bravely and nearly single-handedly wrestles with an age-old wizarding convention, with the ultimate goal of giving the elves better lives by educating them and fellow members of the magical world about what is fair. Even though she is constantly told that the elves like working without pay or without vacation, Hermione recognizes that the elves are only ignorant about how bad their situation really is. Education is the only cure for ignorance.
