Dr Christiane Northrup, author of Goddesses Never Age and Making Life Easy
‘Reclaim that which is lost. Fall inwards and away from that which we have been sold and doesn’t serve us. We are women, deep and wise, and Lisa Lister is a woman walking us into this wisdom. I love Lisa. I love everything she writes. I love her voice, her way, her magic. She weaves the truth and busts through the myths so that we can reclaim our true power. Witch is for every women who aches and knows that there is another way.’
Carrie Anne Moss, actress and founder of annapurnaliving.com
‘Witch is what we all remember when we close our eyes, when we’re unafraid to own our power, when no one and nothing outside of us is as convincing as the force of light we can only find within. Witch is a reclamation, a reparation and mostly a revelation that love cannot be burned or buried. The love that witches have always been can only ever rise, and expand. Witch reveals a lineage of love we inherit when we dare to fully embody and become unapologetic about how much we know.’
Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal and How to Love Yourself
‘Being a witch isn’t just a decision – it’s a calling, and I am certain that Lisa Lister has spent many lifetimes preparing for this call. Lisa is a real witch who dares to shed light on a spiritual craft that shows reverence for women, nature and spirit. Let Lisa and this book be the medicine you need to awaken the witch in you.’
Kyle Gray, bestselling author of Wings of Forgiveness and Raise Your Vibration
‘Lisa Lister is a badass leader of all things feminine. She is here to shine a light on all the shadows of patriarchy that we have all inherited. Witch is a book whose time has come and a response to the feminine that is rising within us all. Rise sister rise.’
Rebecca Campbell, bestselling author of Light is the New Black and Rise Sister Rise

I believe this book is about empowerment, accepting that being a woman is in itself a beautiful thing.
Ms. Lister seems to be reminding us that we do not need approval from anyone but ourselves, while following a path of the Goddess.
If anyone is seeking a book on how to be a Traditional Witch, there exists a plethora of books ranging from overly simplified and “fluffy” material to actual High Magick (not recommended for beginners).
I very much like this book and what it represents. Think outside the box (pun intended) when reading this book. Don’t get all hung up on your uterus or lack of. Perhaps the first step in being witchy is to accept all aspects of the feminine as divine.
I do not mind criticism for my opinion but please don't waste time on grammatical errors, etc.
Not to keep rambling, but I was raised in a religious family and was taught that witchcraft was of the occult and satanic. This book made me realize that witchcraft is nothing of the sort and that it's all been twisted by religious institutions. I now see witchcraft simply as feminine spirituality. Women are very connected with the moon and with the process of creation, so witchcraft is simply a woman connecting with her true source and nature.
Loved the book, very eye-opening.
P.S. I’m a witch as well if anyone was wondering.

The main reason for this being, Lisa repeats the statement in as many words, that we as women are carrying a giant gaping wound left by the patriarchy around with us - always have and always will. I am not new to feminism, and am certainly not new to the awareness of being harmed spiritually AND physically by the patriarchy, but I just couldn't bare to be told over and over again by a fellow 'feminist' of what a victim I am. Perhaps I agree with Lisa in part, that some wounds will never heal no matter how much we work on them, but I feel I've already lived through my very painful 'victim' days - at this point in my journey I feel incredibly empowered and a self-sufficient, self-healer after a heap of Self-work(!) so being brought down to this idea of being a wounded woman over and over again just did not sit well with me. However, perhaps readers who are new to feminism and are yet to acknowledge their wounds will find this beneficial - I do appreciate that.
Others have mentioned of course that Lisa's feminism is not very inclusive, as she only discusses those of us who were born with a womb - and dare I say it white. This also seems so far behind the intersectional, inclusive feminism I feel very much a part of and it was difficult to ignore this.
I did find Lisa's semi comprehensive information about the lunar cycle useful - and if you wanted to read further about working with the moon I would recommend Yasmin Boland's 'Moonology'
I guess in the end I just couldn't relate to Lisa, which is such a shame as I so wanted to strengthen my identity as a feminist witch. Maybe I should have read the last third of the book and I'd have found something there that would have made it worthwhile... But much like having a conversation with someone new that lays down a few statements that feel jarring and quite the opposite of what you stand for, you'd much rather walk away and try again with somebody else that really 'gets' you and you 'get' them, than continue to listen to something you're already certain isn't for you.
Yes, we all know women have been oppressed a lot in history, yes, there is still oppression now, but to highlight that oppression every single page, christ, it's hard work. Incredibly sexist and not inclusive at all. I don't consider myself a strong feminist by any means, and this was just too much. I dont want to see words like 'pussy' to describe the source of inner power, and to go on and on about the womb. And 'mumma earth, have some respect, she's THE Mother.
Overall, her writing just annoyed the hell out of me, and as I said, I returned the book.
It's also a lovely intro to paganism and witchcraft, with plenty of personal stories by the author, which I loved. I've enjoyed Lisa's other books, so as soon as this came out I bought it.
It's clear that the author's writing has triggered people's stuff: some don't like her language, some don't like her criticism of Christianity or the Patriarchy. The book is most certainly NOT anti-Christianity or misandrist. I think some people have mis-read those chapters.
I highly recommend this book if you're a woman looking for an intro to witchcraft, or if you're feeling disconnected from your personal power and would like to get back in touch with that part of yourself. This is a fantastic book.
