Although writing can help decipher history, it’s our humanity which keeps all of us striving for an improved future.

16 Of The Most Evil Women In History

Serial killers and other evil actions are generally attributed to men, but these women certainly proved that evil deeds are not limited to just one sex. The brutality and horror in the hearts of these women is unbelievably cruel. Some of these women make Hannibal Lecture look civilized!

16. Enriqueta Marti

This cruel woman preyed on homeless children and would put them into prostitution or murder them and use their remains for ointments that she claimed cured tuberculosis. She was eventually arrested and hung by her prison mates before trial.

15. Aileen Wuornos

Having a difficult childhood, Aileen grew up hating all men and became a serial killer. She stole cars, stuck up convenience stores and killed a lot of different men before she was arrested and killed in 2002. A movie titled "Monster" demonstrates her life.

14. Wu Zetian

This evil Chinese empress put countless people to death for threatening her rule. She even put her own infant daughter to death as well as other family members.

13. Queen Mary I

This Catholic queen murdered all Protestants in England and was nicknamed Bloody Mary. Every Protestant was forced to flee England in order to survive until Queen Mary died in 1558.

12. Griselda Blanco

This infamous "cocaine godmother," who was already kidnapping and murdering children at age 11, ran the cocaine trade with murderous force in New York and Miami before being shot in the head in 2012. HBO will release Cocaine Godmother in 2018.

 11. Belle Gunness

She killed her three children and husband, used the insurance money to buy a home, remarried and killed his infant daughter and him as well. She then took out an ad as an eligible widow with property. Each prospective buyer would be killed and robbed. She left the country after 40 separate murders and was never found.

10. Ilse Koch

This Nazi wife tortured and killed many Jewish inmates and made lampshades and other household items out of their skin.

9. Irma Grese

This Nazi woman tortured and killed Jewish women who were more attractive than herself. She believed she would have a career in the movies once Germany won World War II but instead was hanged for her crimes in 1945.

8. Katherine Knight

Knight is known for strangling her husband for falling asleep during sex, slitting a boyfriends dog’s throat right in front of him and most infamously stabbing a man 37 times, decapitating him, hanging his body on a meat hook and attempting to feed his cooked body parts to his children.

7. Elizabeth Bathory

Using her political status as a murder hungry housewife in the 16th century, she was responsible for the torture and murder of over 650 women whom would be lured into her castle in hopes of finding a job. (Despite the evidence against Elizabeth, her family's influence kept her from facing trial. She was imprisoned in December 1610 within Csejte CastleUpper Hungary, now in Slovakia, where she remained immured in a set of rooms until her death four years later.)

6. Lizzie Borden

Accused of murdering her family with an ax, she was one of the first criminal cases to gain nationwide attention. Acquitted after trial, speculation continues to this day -- as her guilt is still widely assumed.

5. Maria 'Chata' Leon

As the head of The Avenues, Chata ran one of the most dangerous street gangs in the history of Los Angeles. From her fortress home on Drew St, she ran a criminal enterprise based on drugs, murder, and intimidation. Much of the gang's higher leadership was made up of her children.

4. Myra Hindley

Together with her boyfriend, Ian Brady, Hindley was responsible for the rape and murder of five young children between 1962-68. Hindley died in prison in 2002.

3. Dorothea Binz

As the SS supervisor at the Ravensbruck concentration camp, her dedication to her work was described by her fellow Nazis as "unyielding." Known for patrolling the camp with a whip in one hand and a German Shepard in the other, inmates reportedly fell silent upon her approach. Her reputation of whipping, beating, and even shooting female inmates earned her the position of supervising the torture bunkers at the camp as well as training guards.

2. Biljana Plavšić

As the former president of Republika Srpska, she lead Bosnia-Herzegovina during the Serbian genocides of the 1990s. It was her comments that ethnic cleansing was a "natural thing" and that six million Serbs needed to die, that rallied her republic to perpetrate genocide. After her arrest, she plea bargained with the war crimes tribunal and remained in prison until her release in 2009. She is currently staging a political comeback.

1. Fusako Shigenobu

After a career as a student activist, she volunteered with the PLO before forming the
Japanese Red Army. In her attempts to unite Japan under Communist revolution, she became a full-fledged terrorist. She is responsible for orchestrating the 1974 attack on the French embassy in The Hague, and assisting the 1960 hijacking of TWA flight 840. Until her arrest in 2000, she was the most wanted terrorist on Earth.

About Me

My photo

Even though I am from Kansas, I enjoy venturing into other worlds from around the globe which is why my writing focuses on diversity. With fluid accessibility to modern media and traveling opportunities, my Midwestern world can expand and explore beyond my own backyard. In addition to studying cultures, I take pleasure in studying history. Submitting to a moment in time allows us to remember, or to muse even, over our society’s past. Although writing can educate as well as entertain, yet what makes art incredibly amazing, to that of paintings, photographs, and music, it transposes emotion into another form of humanity, and therefore, it is our humanity which keeps all of us striving for an improved future.
