The Zar

Link to an article re the Zar:

http://www.bdancer.com/zarrevis.html

Quote from the article that drew my attention, re how women at these rites act:

"Smoking, wanton dancing, flailing about, burping and hiccuping, drinking blood and alcohol, wearing male clothing, publicly threatening men with swords...in the context of a Zar they are common and expected."

The article first appeared in Crescent Moon magazine (July-Aug 1996, p. 9-10). (C)1996 Karol Harding.

It reminded me of how one of the accusations made against witches, including Joan of Arc, was the wearing of men's clothing.
