    I have one persistent critique in the usage of the word “witches” by western media to write about the victims of witch-hunts. It shows disrespect to accuse these victims, in that case children, again of being “witches”, just to avoid a more explaining term like “children as victims of witchhunts” or “…of accusations concerning perceptions about magical crimes”
