Description

A magical guide to subverting manboy power, one spell at a time

Skeptics might think witchcraft is nothing more than a fad, but make no mistake: modern witches aren't playing around. Today's wizarding women are raising hell, exorcising haters, and revving up to fight fire with a fierce inferno of magical outrage.

Magic has always been a weapon of the disenfranchised, and in Hexing the Patriarchy, author Ariel Gore offers a playbook for the feminist uprising. Full of incantations, enchantments, rituals, and witchy wisdom designed protect women and bring down The Man, readers will learn how to . . .
  • Make salt scrubs to wash away patriarchal bullshit
  • Mix potions to run abusive liars out of town
  • Use their bare hands and feet to vanquish bro culture
  • Conjure dead relatives to help smash the system
. . . and more.

From summoning Ancestors to leveraging the Zodiac, these twenty-six alphabetically inspired spells are ready-made recipes for toppling the patriarchy with a dangerously divine, they-never-saw-it-coming power.
