clothing-trunk.jpgMale pirates believed  the presence of a woman on board ship would anger water gods, so many female pirates did not identify themselves as such. Many female pirates would act and dress as a man while aboard ship  so as not to be noticed. Notably famous female pirates Anne Bonney and Mary Reed. 

However many historic female pirates dressed feminine.  Pirate Sayyida al Hurra was a queen and dressed as such. Viking Pirate Ladgerda stabbed her former husband with a spearhead she concealed in her dress.  Pirate Ann Mills, who cut off her opponents heads, wore a man's tunic over a skirt.
