Witches are often associated with the practice of using magic to raise the spirits of the dead from their graves. While the more popular type of witch is an evil one, movies such as Oz the Great and Powerful and The Wizard of Oz depicts some witches as innately good. These films show the way the good witches attempt to protect people from the evil ways of the bad witches, and proves that being a witch isn't always a horrible thing.
During the Salem witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts in the late 1600s, being considered a witch was indeed a horrible thing. Mass hysteria and paranoia led to the hearings and convictions of dozens of people. These individuals, both male and female, were accused and even convicted of practicing witchcraft. Some of them were even hanged. But nowadays, at the very worst, being a witch will get you a few screams and maybe a TV show.
