This article arose from my experience organizing the conference, Misogyny: Witches and Wicked Bodies, which was held at the ICA, London, in March 2015. My aim in facilitating this event, which featured Alexandra Kokoli, Lynne Segal and myself as speakers, was to consider feminist interpretations of the witch in contemporary art and whether historical images of witches can be regarded as ‘woman-hating’ or misogynist.
