GIVE ‘EM THE AXE – Female Empowerment with an Edge

AXE MURDERESSES

This is a collection of newspaper stories concerning women who have empowered themselves by having murdered men, women, girls and boys with axes or with hatchets. The patriarchy has attempted to suppress women’s self-esteem and consciousness of strength by keeping the subject of women who murder using axes and hatchets hidden in the closet. But now we will reveal the blades in the closet.

Thanks to special funding provided by VBWUAA, the Violence By Women Using Axes  Act, this previously under-served research topic will begin to get the attention it really deserves.

***
All kidding aside, it must be said that violence committed by women is indeed a serious social problem, just as is the “cultural Marxism” which has corrupted the universities and the professions, resulting in deceptive studies and reports and in some cases, outright fabrications and cover-ups.

To illustrate how the myths of female non-violence  propagated by agenda-driven “experts” become ingrained in the public mind, Here is a chatroom post discussing a London stabling of two children: “Women don't tend to commit violent crimes like this. Just look at the statistics the majority of violent murders are committed by men. Women tend to kill using less forceful means, like smothering or poison/overdose. There are clear distinctions between how men and women who commit crime because whether you like it or not men and women are very different.” [Irina R; Netmums Coffee House Chat, 01-06-08, 13:28#30]

***
You might wonder why the Lizzie Borden case is not included here. The reason is that it is still an unresolved case. There is significant doubt as to whether Lizzie committed the crime. There is an abundance of material on the Borden murders easily available elsewhere.

This is the first axe murderess collection to be compiled, as far as we know. It is only a small sample. There are many, many more cases.

Note: Both “ax” and “axe” are correct spellings of the word. There are a few cases here using hatchets or pickaxes.

The Dirty Dozen: 12 Female Serial Killers Executed in the USA – 1816-2002



Of the twelve American serial killers (3 or more victims) who have been executed between 1816 and 2002 only six have had their biographies published (nine if we count two rare pamphlets –  one about Mary Runkle and one about Martha Grinder – and the fictionalized story in the 2007 novel about Elizabeth Reed).

False claims about Wuronos being a “first” – “the first American female serial killer,” “the first American female serial killer to be executed,” “the first high profile American female serial killer case” – continue to be made regularly.

It may seem unreasonably harsh to say, but the fact is that those writers who continue to make these and other false claims about the mythical “rarity” of female serial killers are liars. We must treat them as liars, even when they might merely be exemplars extreme mental laziness, there is no justification for their behavior just because they made not the slightest effort to research the facts. Of course, in may cases these fraudulent claims are deliberately deceptive, the product of identity politics propagandizing.

Serial Killer Girls


Crime hides, and by far the most terrifying things are those which elude us. ~ Georges Bataille.

NOTE: Among the 32 cases listed here only that of Mary Bell is well-known. The Australian case of Helen Patricia Moore is known in that country but is little-known elsewhere, Clementine Barnabet has begun to get a little attention in the past few years, but previously ignored by the experts. The others, even those over a century old have been overlooked by criminologists.

False confession:

1894 – Johanna Moran (16), Nelly Connolly (15½) – Sydney, Australia – Two girls residing at the Parramatta Industrial School gave detailed confessions of murdering babies. No bodies or other evidence corroborating the claims were located. It was assumed the confessions were a ruse concocted to find a way to leave the confines of the school.

2013 – Miranda Barbour – USA – 18-year-old arrested for murder confesses to over 22 other murders committed beginning at the age of 13. The serial murder confession was made several months following her arrest. The truth of the confession will soon be tested. As yet the claim of being a serial killer is unconfirmed.
