    • The link doesn't work. Hopefully a temporary issue.

      On a tangent, the association of witchcraft with women is a common part of the modern imagination, but doesn't actually line up with history very well. For example when looking at witchcraft persecution, the gender disparity varies drastically from nation to nation. For instance in Iceland, about 90% of witches who were brought to trial were men. Poland was in the neighbourhood of 60% men. Plenty of the groups associated with witchcraft, such as the Calusari, the Horseman's Word, and so on, were male-only societies. Obviously women played a major role in many parts of Europe and the world at large, but by no means did women have an exclusive claim to being witches nor being persecuted for same.
