A complete run in 24 issues of the feminist French arts and literature journal, founded by Xavière Gauthier (pseudonym of Mireille Boulaire) with the goal of giving women a place to express themselves freely through writing and imagery, including prose and poetry, each issue corresponding to a specific theme or topic and with an individual subtitle, themes include food, prostitution, prisoners, death, blood, desires, and many others. Profusely illustrated throughout. Lg. 8vo. Orig. wrpps. Some minor wear to wrpps. Paris 1976-1982.

The first issue begins with an essay by Gauthier titled "Pourquoi Sorcières?", in which the founder describes why she chose "Witches" as the name of the journal, citing the fact that witches dance, they sing, they live, and they enjoy, and have only historically appeared ugly and wicked because they posed a threat to a male-dominated society. Over the course of its publication, many well-known artist and writers made contributions to Sorcières, including Hélène Cixous, Annie Leclerc, Marguerite Duras, Chantal Chawaf, Nancy Huston, Viviane Forrester, and Julia Kristeva, et. al.
