While mass shootings in the United States are predominantly carried out by men, there have been seven instances where women have been involved in such tragic events in the United States. In total, the seven female mass shooters have tragically ended the lives of 36 people, the first tragedy occurring in 1979 at the hands of a teenager.

Although we may never fully comprehend the motivations and circumstances of these women, we do recognize that 98% of mass shootings are committed by men which indicates that the majority of women are better equipped to emotionally navigate the complexities of life without erupting into violent outbursts.

Perhaps addressing the pressures that men and these seven women face in our society could lead us to a path of revamping the way we have conditioned ourselves to live, leading to less violence and self destruction for everyone.
