LADY KILLERS – MONOLOGUES BY WOMEN WHO KILL

In this set of three monologues by women who kill, the author allows us to meet three female killers or murderers, each who kills or has killed for different reasons – for one, it’s a job, the second for revenge and the third, to save her children from a lifetime of potential pain. It is traditionally men who are seen as the harsher sex in modern society and thus it is with fascination that people view female killers, almost as women who are going against the grain of being female, as it were. But, as the monologues point out, women, like men are just as different from each other and their motivations, remain human. But not always pure….

These monologues as as amazing as they are disturbing – a view into the psyche of the female killer.
