Don't Forget They Used To Burn Us

Here's a tee for those who get it. "They Didn't Burn Witches, They Burned Women" This statement shirt is a jolt for us to not forget the centuries of patriarchal BS we women have had to endure. Featuring the goddess Hecate, known as the goddess of witchcraft, magic and crossroads, Hecate symbolizes the strength and resilience of women who have been marginalized and persecuted throughout history.

Design Inspiration: The Goddess Hecate

Hecate, revered in ancient Greek mythology, stands as a powerful symbol of feminine strength, independence, and mystery. As a goddess associated with witchcraft, she embodies the wisdom and power that patriarchal societies have historically sought to suppress. Bitter Thread's art places Hecate front and center, reminding us of the countless women who were wrongfully accused and burned at the stake during the witch hunts. These women were not witches; they were victims of a patriarchal system that feared their strength and independence.

Historical Context Of Witch Burnings

During the medieval and early modern periods, tens of thousands of women were executed under the guise of witch hunts. This brutal practice was rooted in a desire to control and subjugate women, particularly those who did not conform to societal norms set by Christian and Catholic authorities. By wearing this tee, you honor the memory of these women and take a stand against the systemic oppression that continues to affect women today.
