On International Women’s Day 2020, barrister Claire Mitchell KC and writer Zoe Venditozzi launched ‘Witches of Scotland’. Pardons for Witches was a campaign for legal pardons and historic justice for the 4000 people, mostly women, who were tortured, convicted of witchcraft and executed between 1563 and 1736. Claire and Zoe discuss their campaign, the legal pardon and apology received in March 2021, and why historical redress is relevant to the treatment of women worldwide today.
