Ladies with a fury touch

There have been many bearded ladies known from history.

Josephine Clofullia is usually most mentioned: http://www.thehumanmarvels.com/mme-clofullia-the-bearded-lady-of-geneva/

Clementine Delait looks on her later pictures quite a bit like Ether Darling from 'American Horror Story: Freak show': https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cl%C3%A9mentine_ yet the role and life of Ethel look a bit more like the one of Annie Jones: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Jones_%28bearded_woman%29

But the very first known bearded lady was probably Saint Wilgefortis who was venerated by people seeking relief from tribulations, in particular by women who wished to be liberated ("disencumbered") from abusive husbands.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilgefortis
