Mata Hari is still a legend. Despite the distance in time, few are the approaches to her person that draw her clearly as she really was. For some an amoral woman who was willing to do anything to keep living in luxury, and for others, an unconscious woman who was the victim of difficult circumstances.
"I don’t know if I will be remembered in the future, but if I were, let no one see me as a victim but as someone who never stopped fighting bravely and paid the price he had to pay", he went on to say without even imagining that he would become a legend. Mata Hari has become an icon for facing the canons of her time and struggling to be an independent and free woman in a troubled world.
