Vogue is a women’s fashion magazine.
But in a June 19, 2017 article by contributing editor Christina Perez, the fashion magazine is urging women frustrated by “the current [Trump] administration” to “awaken your inner witch” and “feminist powers”.
Vogue‘s Perez quotes Lisa Lister, author of a recently-published book, Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic:
“For so long it’s [witch] been a term that’s been used to demonize, stigmatize, and repress women. But right now, the word is being reclaimed.
Women across the globe are actively using the word ‘witch’ as a way to describe themselves because the witch is waking. The part of us that’s been anesthetized, domesticated, tamed, and kept numb by food, shopping, alcohol, and drugs is now awakening within us. We are re-membering the dis-membered parts of being a woman—who we all were before patriarchy put all our fierce and feminine powers into the darkness, called them taboo, and then taught us all to be afraid of the dark.” (Click to Article)
