History's war criminals...given the opportunity, some women are just as guilty.

Wendy Lower’s stunning account of the role of German women on the World War II Nazi eastern front powerfully revises history, proving that we have ignored the reality of women’s participation in the Holocaust, including as brutal killers. The long-held picture of German women holding down the home front during the war, as loyal wives and cheerleaders for the F├╝hrer, pales in comparison to Lower’s incisive case for the massive complicity, and worse, of the 500,000 young German women she places, for the first time, directly in the killing fields of the expanding Reich.

Hitler’s Furies builds a fascinating and convincing picture of a morally “lost generation” of young women, born into a defeated, tumultuous post–World War I Germany, and then swept up in the nationalistic fervor of the Nazi movement—a twisted political awakening that turned to genocide. These young women—nurses, teachers, secretaries, wives, and mistresses—saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of “wild east” of career and matrimonial opportunity, and yet could not have imagined what they would witness and do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents overwhelming evidence that these women were more than “desk murderers” or comforters of murderous German men: that they went on “shopping sprees” for Jewish-owned goods and also brutalized Jews in the ghettos of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus; that they were present at killing-field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also taking their turn at the mass shooting. And Lower uncovers the stories, perhaps most horrific, of SS wives with children of their own, whose female brutality is as chilling as any in history.

Hitler’s Furies will challenge our deepest beliefs: genocide is women’s business too, and the evidence can be hidden for seventy years.

Nazism’s Feminine Side, Brutal and Murderous

10 Most Evil Women In Nazi Camps

Female guards in Nazi concentration camps

There are many other examples of violence been a genderless enterprise...Stalin's gulags, Mao's prison camps, and even today in some parts of the world like north Korea...Heck, there is even a woman warlord in Afghanistan.
We can also point at the residential school's and how many women, or nuns, ran those places of horror...

I decided to revisit this issue when hilary (I am a feminist, women suffer more than men in war, we saw, we went, he died,) clinton, claimed when women negotiated in politics, things where more...calmer...she's definitely not a good example of thing been more calmer.
This might or might not be true, but given the opportunity, history shows, (some)women, just like (some) men, can be as vicious as anyone else...
Again....Different sides of the same coin...
Violence is not a gender based issue, it is a human one.

The point here is not to demonize all women, TNC doesn't do that, but point out, the actions of radical feminism is to basically lie and bullsh*t their way into blaming only men, and if we do adopt ourselves to their way of thinking, nothing will ever change.
History is full of warlords who where women, maybe not as many as men, but when the opportunity arises, some are just as capable to perform some of the most hideous crimes against humanity as anyone else.
