Abstract:

This paper explores the connection between adolescent girls’ search for spiritual identity, the appeal of Witchcraft, and their thoughts about television and film portrayals of Witches by examining discussions in online essays posted by self-identified teen girl Witches retrieved from the largest witch-oriented Web site, witchvox.com. In these writings, teen girl witches discuss representations of "Witchness” television programs and films, the authenticity and accuracy (or lack thereof) of the portrayals, and the impact these representations have on their daily lives. The findings reveal that, through the persistence of stereotypical media portrayals, the quality of teen girl witch lives are impacted in ways that are significant and serious with significant conflict within themselves and with peers, parents, and educators.
