DURING THE INQUISITION, ANY WOMAN ACCUSED OF USING HER ‘EVIL EYE’ WAS FORCED TO ENTER THE PRESENCE OF THE PRIESTS WITH HER BACK TO THEIR FACES. 
IN THIS WAY, PRIESTS WERE PROTECTED 
FROM BECOMING AN ‘EVIL EYE’ VICTIM.
IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE AND IN ASIA, SOCIETIES TAUGHT THEIR YOUNG GIRLS TO BEHAVE AS ‘PROPER WOMEN’ AND KEEP THEIR EYES LOWERED. YOUNG MAIDENS HAD TO MAKE SURE THEIR ‘EYE’ WAS NOT VISIBLE.
IN ITALY, THE UNIBROW WAS A SIGN OF A WOMAN WITH AN ‘EVIL EYE’.

IN IRELAND, SQUINTY EYES WERE A SURE SIGN WOMAN POSSESSED AN ‘EVIL EYE’.
