  1. My New Article: Anne Bonny and Mary Read: Female Pirates and Maritime Women This will be the kind of article you'll come back to several times. It is packed with information on the two female pirates. It presents their history as presented in the historical record and then discusses the fictional aspects of their mythos, including how a 1960s fiction work accidentally led to the creation of the "facts" surrounding Anne's birth. But for those of you who are also interested in context, there are sections about other women who interacted with pirates, including the only other female pirate of the 1680-1740 period. There is also a section on maritime women that outlines many ways women interacted with sailors. For those of you who ask, "what did women do in the Golden Age of Piracy?" You will have a great starting point of reference in that section. Enjoy, and happy Mothers Day.
  2. Female Pirates

    I am interested in finding out some more about female pirates. Obviously there is Mary Read, Anne Bonny and Cheng I Sao. But I have always been under the impression that there were a number of women who sailed as pirates who's stories are not as famous. I am looking for discussion as well as maybe some suggested reading material. Billie
