The Wheel Of
This tradition draws from the Roman Cults of Diana, all Goddess
centered, matrifocal traditions worldwide, and Gardnerian tradition.
The birth of this tradition is also traced back to the feminist
movement of the 1960's. It was in 1968 that a group of women that were
radically political formed a protest organization called W.I.T.C.H that
stood for Womens International Terrorist Conspiracy From Hell, and they
called themselves a coven. This organization was purely political
however from this group came the inspiration to start covens around the
world that were both spiritual as well as political. Soon after is when
Z Budapest from Hungary whom was a hereditary witch formed the Susan B
Anthony Coven in California, along with opening the first womens
spirituality book, and magic store that she called Feminist Wicca. In
1973 womens cultural festivals became a networking organization for the
women interested in the Dianic Wicca.
