Women are magical for many reasons, and among those reasons is that many of them are magicians!

For years it was common to see women in magic shows involved as the lovely assistant – appearing from boxes, dancing, being levitated or sawed in half. While the magician, a man, got the applause and the name atop the billing, the women were doing a big portion of the work. 

What’s more, increasingly women are the magicians themselves. 

Many years ago in my birth country of Colombia, I attended a Latin American congress of magic, and with great surprise saw for the first time a woman performing a stage show full of music and sleight of hand. 

It was Juliana Chen. The way she presented the act, expressing herself, involving her culture, the music, magic techniques and the routine was more that amazing. It was lovely!

More and more, women have been performing as the magician and not just as the magician’s assistant. Of course, for years many of the critics didn’t take them as seriously or give them as much attention as they do to the male magicians. But that is changing, too.

Women magicians who started years ago are opening doors for a younger generation of women who want to perform magic. 

After seeing the spectacular act of Juliana Chen, I start noticing women performing magic on theaters and TV magic shows such as Melinda “First Lady of Magic,” Mariko Itakura aka Princess Tenko and more! In local and International magic conventions it is more common to see women magicians and a specific contest for female magicians. 

Also, the influence of the Harry Potter movies has been big. The character ? played by Emma Watson has been a big source of inspiration for girls to play a central role in magic. 

I see it all the time in my magic shows. Parents call wanting a magic show for their daughters’ birthday parties. Schools, libraries and corporations want magic shows for the girls in their audience as much as the boys. After a show, I get lots of questions from girls who want to know, “How can I do magic? How do you do the tricks?” Magic sets for kids now feature a picture of a girl magician on the front of the box. 

The art of the magic that we once assumed was locked up just for men and a place where women were the side shows or lovely assistants has changed. Now the world of magic has opened, with women at center stage as the magicians – making magic shows that much lovelier.
