Confusion between two possible answers

For the question 'In spite of herself Katia started to hope' I used 'en dépit d'elle'. This was marked wrong and malgré given as the correct answer. What am I missing here? The lesson says that you can use either.

Hi John, 

If this is in a quiz, you need to re-post using the Report It button on your correction board as it will link directly to the quiz and can be better addressed that way.

Bonne Continuation!

According to the lesson as I read it, it would need to be «en dépit d'elle-même», or «malgré elle».
