Whether through association, partnership, or actually practicing piracy, women were very involved in the world of pirates.  This program will focus on the pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, as well as look at the supporting roles that women played in the world of piracy.  Unfortunately, due to the fact that women pirates were forced to hide their gender, we will never know how many female pirates were active during the Golden Age of pirates, but thanks to women such as Anne Bonny and Mary Read we know they were out there.  Free Admission. No advance registration. Walk-ins welcome.  North Carolina Maritime Museum.
