Female Werewolf

Female werewolves, or ‘werewomen’, are very distinctive, most cases of lycanthropy (the transformation of a human into a wolf) throughout time have involved men.

Examples of accounts of werewomen can be found in sixth century Lebanon. A pack of werewomen reportedly attacked a village, and in France in 1615, when a woodsman was reportedly attacked by a wolf.

Dark and monstrous names perfectly suit werewomen, due to their association with savagery and ruthlessness.
