Why is magic dominated by men?
Magic has long been the preserve of men. For more than a century women have served as the glamorous assistants to male magicians, being sawn in half or disappeared before your very eyes. The “golden age” of magic spanned from the 1880s to the 1930s and, arguably, the profession hasn’t caught up with the modern day in terms of equality. Which prompts the question: do you need to have your own “magic wand” to be a magician today?
