Summary:"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. In the first English translation of this award-winning book on the subject, Muriel Feiner chronicles the struggle of women to become matadors - not only Spanish and Latin American women but also American, French, and British - from the seventeenth century to the present day. Her extensive research includes interviews with noteworthy authorities and with the protagonists themselves. Complementing the text is an extraordinary collection of historical and contemporary photographs."--BOOK JACKET.
