There are many correlations between 1692 and 2022, in the sense that women are still treated similarly. Constantly being told we’re crazy, dramatic, or worse. You might not get hung or burned at the stake, but social media is always present to chew you up and spit you back out into nothingness. Keep that in mind.
This exhibit, which was based on historical facts, was also a tribute Alexander McQueen put together during his 2007 Paris Fashion Week show, in honor of Sarah How, a relative of his who was hung during the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. There are other photos I will share of modern day “witches”, but ultimately, the exhibit made me angry. I see the connection clearly. We’ve come so far (as women), yet things can easily revert back to times of this nature. If you don’t see it; you’re blind. Worse? As you look at the historical facts, you have to question why this was pursued at all. To this day, people use the words, “witch hunt”, without understanding how derogatory it is because people lost their lives, and the phrase is also incorrect for the current state of being.
