"By the early modern era, the archetypal witch embodied the fear of female flesh unchained. Devious and obscene, everything about her flew in the face of patriarchal authority."
🧡🖤🧡🖤 @ferskner Thank you so much for my #WitchPleaseSwap gifts!! You were able to get all the books I suggested and then some! I'm beyond excited & grateful. So much Witchy Feminism 🤗. I love all the goodies too, that candle smells devine. (I may or may not be half way through Literary Witches already. So many inspiring women, my TBR is getting stacked!) 🧡🖤🧡🖤
Thanks for organizing this fantastic swap!! @monalyisha 💜🖤
It took me awhile to get around to reading this after I bought it, and I definitely regret waiting. I looove this one. The way the author ties witchy history to women's history as well as to the present just works wonderfully. Highly recommended.
Actually got tutted at by someone whilst reading this on the tube 😏
This book was really interesting. It made connections between the history witches, sexism and how as feminism moves forward there are changes in how society and especially women see witches. While I don‘t agree with everything in this book I loved the connections and history and it‘s a great #feminist book. #nonfiction
Finished this one on the plane back from Thailand 🇹🇭
This was a really cool little book, delivered a bit like a dissertation 😂 but it was an angle I‘d never looked at and was quite uplifting and empowering, a nice twist on something quite dark.
A concise overview of social attitudes towards witches, and how that is entangled with misogyny through history. The author also looks at the contemporary practice of Wicca and includes brief interviews with witches. I was most interested in descriptions of activists who have used the mantle of witchcraft to instigate social change.
My feminist book club also goes by "the Coven" on Goodreads. I think we'll have fun with this title at our meeting tonight. ?
Back from a trip of a lifetime in London and Oxford. Not ready to deal with reality yet. Diving into this ARC I received. So far, so good! And I love the cover!
