Product Description

A celebration of magical women and nonbinary people in American history, from Salem to WitchTok.

Meet the mystical women and nonbinary people from US history who found strength through the supernatural – and those who are still forging the way today.

From the celebrity spirit mediums of the nineteenth century to contemporary activist witches hexing the patriarchy, these icons have long used magic and mysticism to seize the power they’re so often denied.

Organized around different approaches women in particular have taken to the occult over the decades – using the supernatural for political gain, seeking fame and fortune as spiritual practitioners, embracing their witchy identities, and more–this book shines a light on underappreciated magical pioneers, including:

Dion Fortune, who tried to marshal a magical army against Adolf Hitler

Bri Luna, the Hoodwitch, social media star and serious magical practitioner

Joan Quigley, personal psychic to Nancy Reagan

Marie Laveau, voodoo queen of New Orleans

Elvira, queer goth sex symbol who defied the Satanic Panic

And many more!
