Between 1900 and 2005 fifty women were executed in the USA.

Women who include Virginia Christian, the last female minor executed in the States on the day after her seventeenth birthday. Then Governor of the State of Virginia, William Hodges Mann, declined to commute the death sentence, despite separate pleas for clemency from Virginia’s mother and father.
