Female Matadors Try To Grab Equality By The Horns

Last night, as part of its annual POV series, PBS premiered She Is the Matador, a documentary about women who wish to be professional bullfighters in Spain, but face a 101-year-old law that bans females from the sport.

The clip above gives a brief, quirky history of female matadors in Spain (even nuns did it!), and the old-timey pictures and costumes (and the fight against sexism) made the sport seem appealing to me. Then I watched the clip below, and it didn't seem as nearly enchanting anymore. NSFV (Not Safe For Vegans).
