Modern Day Witches

“The smoke of burnt witches still hangs in our nostrils.” – Starhawk

I love the way this Brooklyn-based girl gang and creative agency uses the word “witch” in a such an historically accurate way; In the past, liberated/queer/non-conforming women were the very ones that actually got branded witches and often lost their lives for it.

WITCHES Bushwick Broadly

Personally, it’s a reminder that the battle is never fully won. We, the outsiders, “all the people that might have been persecuted for who they were, in the historical sense of ‘witches’ at the time,” need to continue to stand for our freedom, because society is never too far from sliding backwards.
