This book was fantastic. I particularly found the parallels between the Salem witch trials of yesteryear, with the slut shaming of today quite fascinating. I need to read more about Salem, and perhaps start a coven... I'm inspired.

"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."

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.

elizabethlk Also it counts as a social science book for #readharder 13mo

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

elizabethlk I actually got a copy of this a few months ago, but just haven't had the chance to read it. Glad to hear positive stuff about it. Definitely need to read through it soon! 2y
GypsyKat This sounds right up my ally! I‘m definitely adding this to my TBR! 2y
Weaponxgirl I started it and was loving it, there was a bit where it describes how it was believed witches stole penises to keep as pets and they lived in birds nests being fed oats and corn. Like yup, I can aspire to that kind of witchcraft 😂 2y

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.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m going to have to read this one! 2y
readordierachel Ooh, this sounds fascinating! 2y

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!
