Are Witches Feminist Icons?

Season 4 Ep 82/26/2016

Are witches feminist symbols? It’s not a new idea, and can definitely be supported by some historical facts. The persecution of women who were believed to be witches can be viewed as a symbol of the oppression of women in general. And because witches were at one time respected and honored in the pagan tradition, they are one of the few symbols throughout history that represent women who were independently empowered. On this week’s Braless, Laci Green discusses these ideas, and how it relates to the film ‘The Witch.’ Let us know your opinions on the relationship between witchcraft and feminism in the comments below!
