Women and the Bullring from Muriel Feiner is a ground-breaking work--a feminist treatise sprung from one of the last bastions of male dominance and chauvinism."--Allen Josephs, University of West Florida, author of Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida: The Saga of Cesar Rincon
The presence of women in the bullring was literally 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 inroads into this male domain. The story of <i>Women and the Bullring</i> 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."
