It’s no secret that women and girls are often victims of murder worldwide. But when women are the perpetrators? Way to turn the patriarchy on its head! Everyone knows the murder industry is WAY overcrowded with men. In fact, men commit more than 90 percent of homicides worldwide. Here are some ladies that murder who are totally killing the game, and carving out a place at the table for us all. #GIRLBOSS!

1. Lizzie Borden

 In 1892 Massachusetts, she gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. This feminist was NOT fucking around! And having it all immortalized in a folk rhyme? Absolutely baller.

2. The Size Merry Murderesses of the Cook County Jail

Popping gum? Six wives? Fried chicken? Something in Russian? Dancing? Exploring his sexuality? He did have it coming, girlfriend! It was a murder, but not a crime. 


3. Amy Schumer

Um, did you see her last special?

4. The Barenaked Ladies

This one doesn’t quite make sense, but their name is misleading and gross since they are male!
