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" through art, film, music, fashion, literature, technology, religion, pop culture, and politics. 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 addresses and illuminates contemporary conversations about reproductive rights, sexual pleasure, queer identity, pornography, sex work, and more. Author Kristen J. Sollee elucidates the ways in which women have been persecuted for their perceived connection with witchcraft, and how they have fought back, harnessing the legacy of the witch for revolutionary means. Kristen J. Sollee is an instructor at The New School and founding editrix of Slutist, an award-winning sex positive feminist website.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A whirlwind history of the witch in America and her shared history with sexually liberated women and radical liberationary politics." - Kim Kelly, The Guardian "A Must-Read...If you're looking for a thoughtful, informed look at the origins of European witchood and slutdom from past to present, then you have stuck gold with Witches, Sluts, Feminists." - Jessica Reidy, BUST "Part history, part compendium, part feminist grimoire" - Dianca London Potts, NYLON "This accessible guide is engrossing and succinct. Each chapter is only a few pages, but don't let the slimness of the volume fool you. There are no wasted words, for words have intentions, as we well know, and Sollee provides informative background information in each chapter, slowly building on the history of witches, sex positivity, and feminism." - Nicole Moore, Dear Darkling
