As her dear lackeys trembled with fear, Kuschra gave the order to stand behind her. Men with deplorable designs would ambush them at any time, assuming they were frail maidens. That was why Kuschra started her band, to gather and protect her fellow sisters. Under her assailants' leers, she lashed out with caustic words. "Don't think you've won yet, testosterone brains! This is the dawn of the age of women!"

The word femme ("woman, girl; wife") is taken from the French, literally "woman", from Old French feme, derived from Latin femina "woman, female".
A femme fatale ("fatal woman") is a stock character of a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having power over men.
