Escrava Anastácia, or Anastácia the slave, was an 18th century Brazilian slave. She suffered a brutal existence because she refused to give in to the sexual desires of her master. Much of her life is the subject of folklore and is sometimes depicted with blue eyes. A woman of great beauty, she was muzzled with a mask and often suffered in silence. Today, throughout Brazil, many women wear the mask in public displays in honor of Anastácia as a sysmbol of resistance.

La Llorona, the weeping woman. Mexican Legend tells of a woman who drowned her children to be with a man who in turn would not have her. Guilt of her evil deeds drove her to suicide, where in death she is trapped in a state of despair. Caught in between the living and the dead; she wails like a banshee and cries tears made from the blood of her children. It is said those who hear her cries are marked for dead.
