Welcome to Wicked Women Week, Spooky Isles’ way of celebrating International Women’s Day, which happens to be today.
Over the next seven days, we’re going to highlight some of the worse, most scandalous, most evil and the most shocking females the UK and Ireland has ever known. And no doubt the most fun!
While you may think some of the women we’ll discuss weren’t wicked at all (just a little bit naughty) and you might even feel sorry for them – poor old Elizabeth Sawyer comes to mind) – we can all agree they deserve to be mentioned on The Spooky Isles.
Some of the articles will include:
- Female Jack the Ripper Suspects
- Grace O’Malley: The Pirate Queen of Ireland
- Top 10 Hammer Horror Actresses
- Morgan Le Fay, the Woman who stole Excalibur
- Great Women from Gothic Horror
- And much more!
Thank you to all our talented writers and contributors who have submitted articles for this week. It’s going to be a totally wicked ride!
