Pirate Trivia Day 2

While dashing male pirates have dominated fiction and movie screens for ages, female pirates are often left behind or ignored. In the Age of Sail, from the 15th-19th century, women around the world had few rights or opportunities to escape a life of marriage, children and housework. While this contented many women of the age, some had the same irresistible urge for adventure, for crime and for freedom from land laws. Female pirates ruled waters throughout the world, but today are often forgotten next to their more plentiful male crew mates.

Name two female pirates.

As a bonus:
What is the name of the 1995 movie starring Geena Davis a swashbuckler? What was her character's name?

Good Luck!
