Witch, Slut, Feminist: these contested identities are informing millennial women as they counter a tortuous history of misogyny with empowerment.

This innovative primer highlights sexual liberation as it traces the lineage of “witch feminism” through art, film, music, fashion, literature, technology, religion, pop culture, and politics.

Juxtaposing scholarly research on the demonization of women and female sexuality that has continued since the witch hunts of the early modern era with pop occulture analyses and interviews with activists, artists, scholars, and practitioners of witchcraft, this book addresses and illuminates contemporary conversations about reproductive rights, sexual pleasure, queer identity, pornography, sex work, and more.

Author Kristen J. Sollee elucidates the ways in which women have been persecuted for their perceived connection with witchcraft, and how they have fought back, harnessing the legacy of the witch for revolutionary means.

    This is an awesome book! It’s broken up into easy-to-read sections, and beautifully draws on the historical context of witch-hunts to argue that the patriarchy is nothing new. Written in a language that isn’t too academic, I found it very easy to immerse myself in the dialogue throughout. The sections of the book are also divided by type of power that we “witches” can tap into, from technology to politics to art to our sexuality! I also love the art style, and the drawings throughout create a lush and enriching reading experience. Would absolutely buy again!
