"Is it Witch-A woman? or Witch-E woman?" - Jerry Seinfield

Hot News in our Music Section...

Gypsy's New Release: Yes ! The famous Salem Witch with the beautiful voice... Gypsy is presently writing and recording her follow-up to the famous 1990 release Enchantress. No release date is set but it will be this year and we will keep you informed... ALSO Gypsy has re-mastered Enchantress and is planning on releasing it on CD, I've heard it, it's sonically stellar and if you are a fan (as most Witches are) you are going to want it. Look for Enchantress on CD in the next couple of months.

Kiva Goes Live: Major News... Ariana of Kiva has just informed us that they are putting the final touches on their soon to be released KIVA - Live at the Forest Inn Volume I and II (available soon on both CD and cassette. They are releasing this in two parts; The first part will be out on or around Beltane and the second part sometime this fall. Those that have experienced this band live will be thrilled to hear that the following tunes will be on the initial release....Star of the Sea, Witchin Hour, Empowerment, Twa Corbies, Green Man, Devi Puja, The Basin, Durge Durge, Ariana's Blessing, Go Now. . Official release details have just come in and can be found at the KIVA HOME PAGE.

Your Cherished Support... Wren and I would like to personally thank the wonderful Witches that believe in this mission and have become sponsors over the last week... May you be thrice blessed for your generosity and do know that you will make a difference and that your voice will be heard. We now have a federal tax id number and have finally opened a checking account. New this week! Here we cover details related to what a site like this costs and our future plands check out this month's Notes from the WebMaster.

Charged but soon to be acquitted... This home page has grown a bit out of control (load time wise) in the last couple of weeks and once again it's time for restructuring... Our goal is a wicked fast home page and even more intuitive navigation throughout the site... Plans over the next couple of weeks include: moving the Witches' Voice to new and faster server, a leaner and faster home page (Split in to 3 sections) and an automatically generated "Wicked Fast" Site map index that is a breeze to maintain. Also up this week is our new Site Map Index.


Network
Live Feedback Forum... Wanna yak with other Witches ? Have a question about Witchcraft ? Wanna meet some wonderful Witches ? Wanna find Witches in your area ? This is where the action is. Check in for the latest in discussions related to the Craft of the Wise...

Networking Update... The contacts and Web site listings keep pouring in and this week we added another 30 web sites and over 100 new Wiccan contacts. We now have over 350 annotated links and a wonderful new system to maintain them. Our "Contact a Witch" has grown in 3 weeks to over 500 Wiccan contacts from all over the planet... United we stand for sure.

Help us Help Witches... Become a Sponsor of the Witches' Voice - by supporting the Witches' Voice you help to keep this website alive, help Witches of the World maintain their right to practice Witchcraft (last year the WLPA gave over $8,000 bucks to cases like Iron Oak and Kerri Patavino), get deals on HOT WitchVox products (TBA) and a very cool looking sponsorship card. Even a book of stamps or a single dollar really helps. Presently we have 32 paying sponsors and may they be thrice blessed for their support. Send your support to The Witches' Voice, P.O. Box 560157, West Medford, Massachusetts 02156


Always remember, this is YOUR web site, we simply do the maintenance. YOU can do some wonderful things for the Witches of the World. We simply can't do this without you... Blessed Be Well - The Witches' Voice Staff
New This Month: Last Months Highlights:


Check out our in-depth coverage of this month's incredible story...

When the Pot Calls the Kettle Black: The Cult Activities of the Media. The media certainly wasn't ready for the skillful and calculated departure of the Heaven's Gate folks. As sensational as this story was, apparently no crime had been committed and this made the media crazy. They spent most of the week in total confusion and tried desperately to get some momentum out of this story. Their first assumption was that it must be a "Satanic Cult". Sorry, NOT even close (they held many Christian beliefs). By day two they were running out of gas so they decided to "Blame" the internet. Click on the image to the left and check out our in-depth coverage of this story.



The Witches Voice on the Web is basically this index and the sub-indexes (listed below). Every sub-index (or chapter) contains a detailed listing of its related contents... Click ANY header or footer on any page to return to the Sub-Index or Home Page. ALSO note that just about EVERY graphic on this Web Site is a hot link to a Web page or a pop up email form.

Netcom
br>The internet has brought many Witches together over the last year. This section celebrates our effort to increase communication throughout the global Witchcraft community. Go here to find other Witches, check out their Web sites and talk to us live. Key pages include: Witch Sites on the Web Live Feedback Forum Circles & Events.


 Basics


There are as many traditions of Witchcraft as there are ways to work magic... This section details the basics of the Craft of the Wise as well as covering the fundamental laws of Witchcraft. If you are new to the Craft this section is a great place to start. We are constantly updating and changing this section.


Cases
br>The Witch Trials of the 1990's... Although Witchcraft has been a legally recognized religion in America since 1985 most of this planet (including many Witches) are simply unaware of this critical fact. Religious discrimination happens on an almost daily basis and in this section we detail the cases that we are constantly keeping an eye on. These Witches need your help and support. and YES it could happen to you.


WVOX

What is the Witches' Voice and what do they do? This section details our activities, current staff, upcoming promotions, legal & financial status, sponsorships, and our future plans as an anti-discrimination and proactive educational organization. This is a section that changes constantly so do check in for the latest.


Witches

Realizing that many Witches have specific needs we created this section to deal with exactly that. Key pages include: Teenage Pagans Gay Witchcraft Pagan Parenting Witchcraft in the Military. We have plans for rapid growth of this section so do check back for the latest and newest pages.


Music
br>Does Witchcraft have its own music ? You bet it does, but the problem is that very few seem to have access to this information... This section is the beginning of our blitz to increase this awareness and celebrate the musical endeavors of many fine Witches/Wiccans and Pagans. It features pictures, bios and contact information on well known Witch/Pagan musicians and details our plans to release a wonderful compilation CD of 13 songs by 13 Witches.


Words

Witchcraft is on the rise big time and this section delivers the thoughts and opinions of many Witches... We celebrate the launch of this new site with a wonderful editorial entitled "The Quest for Unity in the Pagan Community" by Wren Walker. Every quarter we feature the latest installment of "Jane's Tidings" and many wonderful guest editorials on a regular basis.


Media

Witches and Pagans, Oh my ! The Voice makes every effort to keep up on the media's portrayal of Witches & Witchcraft. Since our fundamental mission is to educate and "undo" centuries of bad press we are always on the lookout as to just how the media views our religion (both bad & good). Featured pages include: "Witch City" (the story of Salem, Mass.) A review of the new movie "The Crucible" and a celebration of the Coolest Pagan Show on TV.


White

"WOW, the black pages are cool but a nightmare to print out..." This is true and although this Web site grew out of the internet's protest against censorship by turning the pages black, we are not insensitive to this problem. Hence... THE WHITE PAGES. This section contains printable versions of our most important legal reference documents and form letters that you can use in YOUR local fight for YOUR religious freedom... Look for continuing expansion of this critical section.

The Witches' Voice Mission Statement: The Witches' Voice is a proactive educational network dedicated to correcting misinformation about Witches and Witchcraft. Witchcraft IS a legally recognized religion in the United States (since 1985) and it is our mission to protect that right through education and awareness. We offer Pagan Political Neutrality to all God/Goddess Earth-Based Traditions and Solitary Practitioners that follow the Rede, the Law of Three or a similar compatible Code of Ethics. - So Mote it Be !
