Bonnie Parker (October 1, 1910 - May 23, 1934) became famous as the accomplice of her boyfriend, Clyde Barrow. She scandalized the nation with her unladylike deeds of robbing and killing; she was even photographed smoking a cigar. Parker used to send photos of herself and Barrow to newspapers. They died in an ambush by Texas and Louisiana police officers near Sailes, Louisiana.

 "La Adelita" in Mexico has become an archetype of a woman warrior during the Mexican Revolution. An Adelita was a soldadera, or woman soldier, who not onlycooked and cared for the wounded but also actually fought in battles against Mexican government forces. In time the word “Adelita” was used for all the soldaderas, who became a vital force in the revolutionary war efforts.
