Fierce Females of History


Rosaleen Norton: The Witch of Kings Cross

Season 3, Ep. 47

Winter solstice is less than a month away, and what better way to celebrate our mid-season break than with a tale of a witch: one of the earliest symbols of feminism. 

Today, hear the story of Sydney artist, counterculturist and occultist Rosaleen Norton. 

Norton defied the norms of 1950s Australia to create revolutionary art and push others to expand their views of the world. 

In this episode, you’ll learn about Norton’s unusual upbringing, how she used trances and sex magic to commune with higher beings and astral project, the meaning behind her distinctive artworks, and how she came to be known as the witch of Kings Cross.
