Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive
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.” 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 enriches contemporary conversations about reproductive rights, sexual pleasure, queer identity, pornography, sex work, and more.

“For the first time in my life I felt like I was reading about a history that I was actually part of. — Jacqueline Frances, author of The Beaver Show and Striptastic!
