Don't Forget Our Dark History

Bitter Threads "They Didn't Burn Witches, They Burned Women" unisex tee is a stark reminder of the centuries of patriarchal oppression. Featuring the goddess Hecate, this shirt is a tribute to the strength and resilience of women who've faced persecution throughout history.

Design Inspiration: The Goddess Hecate

Hecate, celebrated in ancient Greek mythology, represents feminine strength, independence, and mystery. As the goddess of witchcraft, magic, and crossroads, she embodies the wisdom and power that patriarchal societies have historically tried to suppress. Bitter Threads' design features Hecate prominently, symbolizing the countless women who were wrongfully accused and executed during witch hunts. These victims weren't witches; they were women whose strength and independence were feared by a patriarchal system.

Historical Context of Witch Burnings

In the medieval and early modern periods, tens of thousands of women were executed during witch hunts. These brutal acts were driven by a desire to control and subjugate women, particularly those who didn't conform to the societal norms imposed by Christian and Catholic authorities. Wearing this tee honors the memory of these women and stands against the systemic oppression that continues to impact women today.
