Since the creation of the world, the human race has consistently carried out different activities - either good or evil. Men are naturally tipped to be stronger, aggressive, and violent gender than women. The evidence of this is the fact that the first person to murder earth was a man.
In the olden days, men were hunters. They go out to kill animals for food. On their own part, women will stay at home - doing house chores and preparing food for their husbands and children. Hence, it will be shocking to hear that some evil women also exist. On hearing this, some people will be surprised that women that are supposed to be compassionate and caring also have some evil elements among them. If you have not heard of evil women, the truth is, some women are termed evil because of their wicked actions. The history books have recorded arrays of evil women that have at one point existed on earth.
The table below summarizes the year of birth and death of the evil women.

Rosemary West is ranked as the top evil woman that existed on earth. The fierce woman was actively involved in different shocking cases. Rosemary West didn't have the best start. She was sexually abused by her father. She formed a criminal-like alliance with Fred West, her husband in the 1970s.

They commit these criminal offenses and bury the dead bodies of the victims under their houses. The victims include their daughter and the daughter Fred West had from his previous relationship.

Mary Ann Cotton killed them to inherit all that belongs to them. She was eventually sentenced to death by hanging at the age of 40. The rope that was used to execute her was shorter than it should be. This was done on purpose to execute her on suffocation.
