The alternative title to Tuesday night’s lecture would have been “How Women of Power Cannot be Tolerated,” Daun Evema said.

The lecture, actually titled “History of Witchcraft: Nasty Women,” highlighted defining women in witchcraft who were persecuted because of their threat to the power of the patriarchy.

“It’s because of you I have a hard-on, and you’re disgusting,” said Evema, lecturer and owner of Sunrise Hive tarot reading center, as she put herself in the perspective of man talking about a powerful woman. “Women had the power to make you feel things you didn’t want to feel.

These women were dubbed “nasty women” for the lecture. The term became popularized when President Trump called Hillary Clinton a nasty woman at the final presidential debate.
