A witch was a being that practiced forms of magic or spells. They could appear in any form but during the 17th century they were hunted down and hanged. The Salem Witch Trials was an example of the paranoia of the New World in order to find any and kill them. Whether or not these people that were executed were actually witches or warlocks is unknown.
The word itself is sometimes used as an insult towards women (occasionally as a replacement for the word bitch).
