You'd be hard pressed to find two sisters more opposite than the Everdeen girls. In The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen steals the spotlight as the obvious hero who keeps the audience on the edge of its seats. She's the girl on fire, the Mockingjay, the girl that sparked a revolution — but what about her sister, Prim? Though she may get overlooked, Primrose Everdeen is a true feminist hero.
Throughout the series, Katniss and Prim display opposite qualities. Katniss is a hunter, and Prim is the caretaker. Prim is gentle where Katniss is brassy, quiet where Katniss is outspoken, and each sister finds strength where the other struggles with weakness. Although it is Katniss who volunteers as tribute to save Prim from certain death in the arena at the beginning of the series, by the end, sweet and fragile Prim has grown into a strong, unapologetic, feminist woman who is not afraid to take care of things on her own.
Although Katniss is billed as the obvious feminist hero, breaking stereotypes and becoming the face of the revolution, Prim is just as much of a feminist. It is her unsuspecting strength and determination that blossom as time goes on that make her a Hunger Games favorite, and why she's a feminist hero, just like her sister.
