This Day in History - AAAARRRR!!!

From historychannel.com:
A pirate to be reckoned with makes her mark
June 10th, 1714

When a young man makes a crude pass at 14-year-old Anne Brennan on the streets of Charleston, South Carolina, Brennan beats him so badly that his jaw is broken and he must be hospitalized for months. The strong, quick-tempered girl would later become a notorious pirate who terrorized the Caribbean for several years.

At the age of 16, Brennan married James Bonny and the two settled in the Bahamas. While Bonny tried to make his living informing on the local pirates, Anne began to think that she would rather join the bad guys. She left Bonny and took up with Albert Backhouse, killing his mistress and taking her place in the business of laundering stolen goods for the pirates.
Definitely go read the rest. It is most interesting.
