Om boka

The presence of women in the bullring was banned in Spain until 1975, when the country's political transition to democracy recognized equal rights for women in every aspect of society. After centuries of brave and relentless crusading, women have managed to make in-roads into this male domain. The story of ""Women and the Bullring"" is one of daring and determined women who overcome countless obstacles and sexist barriers to realize a unique dream - that of becoming a ""matadora de toros"". The volume chronicles the struggle of women to become matadors - not only Spanish and Latin American women but also American, French and British - from the 17th century to the present day. The book includes women who have attempted to make in-roads into the bullfighting world as bull breeders, journalists, photographers, managers, artists and impresarios, as well as a section devoted to the wives and mothers of some of the most prominent male toreros.
