So us Good Witches of the North really feel that without our fellow 21st Century Witches around the world we wouldn’t be as inspired as we are to empower ourselves so that we can effectively empower others.
Each week, therefore, we will be awarding inspirational women our Honourary Good Witch Award.
A 21st Century Witch knows herself and accepts herself for everything she is, empowers herself to be able to empower others, says it as it is and truly walks her walk.
And to kick off week one, we are announcing FIVE of these amazing women who we feel really fit our definition of a 21st Century Witch. So, in no particular order we give you...
...this incredibly smart woman goes from strength to strength, has endless talent and integrity in her work and really stands up and speaks out for her beliefs too - equality and progress for women in the entertainment industry plus a range of other human rights and environmental issues. Emma Thompson is definitely our number one for the first ever Honourary Good Witch List.
...at just 20 years old this woman used her full voice, her full passion and her full power in her maiden House of Commons speech on 14th July. This strong, witty and thought-provoking speech is just the beginning for this amazing politician who promises to stand up for her beliefs with absolute integrity as we head into the future. Go Mhairi Black!!
...where do we start with Naomi? An intelligent and eye-opening author, a democratic political adviser and someone who really does say it as it is in order to create necessary change. We also cannot champion enough her recent stand against women undermining themselves by using less than half their natural vocal power plus highlighting their tendencies towards upward inflections and vocal fry. Yep, we wholeheartedly and whole-vocally give Naomi Wolf one standing ovation here.
...a woman who fully embodies herself, a great actress, speaker and someone who really puts herself out there for the empowerment of animals and humans alike, we could not leave Ms Lumley off our very first Witch List. This woman holds elegance, wit and strength in equal measures and is certainly someone who consider epitome of a Good Witch.
...a life coach who really went through her life stuff to earn her stripes, Carole Ann used to be a full time journalist and then decided, when life threw some pretty unpleasant stuff her way in terms of the death and illness of close friends, that she wanted to help people. She began by working as a Samaritan, retraining as a life coach and now she empowers people all around the world with her work, still managing to write articles as well as a couple of books. Carole Ann is smart, sassy, classy and kind. She’s definitely an Honourary Good Witch as far as we are concerned.
All of these women will receive our Honourary Good Witch Award and we will be announcing another two wonderful women next week so do sign up for our Witch List, Spells, News and other Down-to-Earth Magic...
