She Kills Me: The True Stories of History’s Deadliest Women
She Kills Me is a collection of forty true stories of women who kill. Their reasons and methods differ, as well as their number of victims, but each one has murdered or killed someone, at least allegedly. Some were convicted and executed, while a few were found not guilty even after admitting their crimes. Some were even praised for their deeds. The main thing they have in common is that these are all women who defied the idea that women are incapable of killing unless coerced by a man. While that may be the case in some instances, women are just as capable of evil deeds or of fighting for glory as men, as is seen in these true stories. There are examples from all over the world and different eras ranging from poisoners, black widows, rebellion leaders, and warrior women. Basically, the idea is, never underestimate a woman and what she’s capable of.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Full of interesting facts and side notes, I learned about a lot of women I had never heard of and more about some I had. There were some great women to epitomize, like Virginia Hall, but more to avoid becoming.
