Request for research volunteers

One of the Friends of the Museum of Witchcraft is doing a research project and is looking for people to volunteer information. PLease help if you can. I am attaching her letter to the Friends which is self explanatory:
Do you feel that Witchcraft has changed the woman you are today?
Dear Friends,
I had the privilege of meeting many of you at the December gathering, but for those of you that I have not met, my name is Ashley Reichelmann and I am an American Masters student of Sociology at the University of Bristol in Bristol, England. For my dissertation, I would like to explore the role of the deity in the daily lives of women who define themselves as “witches”. Therefore, I am seeking female volunteers (over the age of 18) who are willing to share their stories with me as a researcher. The process would entail a series of qualitative research methods, beginning with a brief questionnaire, which—if you are interested—could lead to an interview and a focus group with like-minded females and myself. First and foremost, confidentiality will be the utmost priority. Ultimately, I am seeking to show the many positive aspects of Witchcraft, especially relating to its role in the liberation of women.
If you are interested, I would love to hear from you as soon as possible, but by June 1st, the latest. Please contact me at
areichelmann@gmail.com, or via post at 17 Woodland Court/29 Belgrave Road/Bristol/ BS8 2AA/UK, with your interest, inquiries or suggestions. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Blessed be!
Your fellow “Friend”,
Ashley Reichelmann
