Eldorado Posted January 6, 2022 #1 Share Posted January 6, 2022 Two authors and leading voices on portrayals of 'witchcraft', both modern and historical, discuss the changing image of the ‘witch’ in society and whether women are still being put on trial by pervasive social misogyny. Who, or what, is a ‘witch’? The meaning of the word is ever-changing. Today, witches are upheld as strong and independent role models in children’s literature, and ideas around the mystical and supernatural are now seemed as far-fetched or harmless instead of the serious accusations they once were. Witchcraft wasn’t always seen this way. The term ‘witch’ carries a long, controversial, and violent history that stretches back over centuries. https://www.panmacmillan.com/blogs/literary/mona-chollet-and-sally-hinchcliffe-who-is-the-modern-day-witch 5 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
