@yugenheim:
If you ever go to Bolivia make sure to watch the Cholitas. The event is held in a small town outside of La Paz each sunday. Watching these women in their traditional skirts bashing each other heads while the whole room is cheering for them is an experience you won’t find anywhere. This form of professional wrestling - Lucha Libre - started out in Mexico and are now spread out in other different spanish-speaking countries. In Bolivia the Lucha Libre has developed to a more female-dominant event where the Cholitas are outshining their fellow male-wrestlers.

The five members of Las Diosas del Ring, a women’s wrestling group in La Paz, Bolivia. The women, who are of native Ayamara decent, wear traditional clothes of a dress and bowler hat, when they fight. They are, from left: Clara Felicidad Reyes Ross, Johana Silva Huanapaco Vilela, Veraluz Cortez, Polonia Ana Choque Silvestre and Remedios Condori Ajsara. They gather to fight at the back of Polonia’s home

Las mujeres en Bolivia son de mucho esfuerzo y sacrificio, pero se visten muy bien y con lana de las mas finas, esos vivos colores muestran que la elegancia y la alegría no son monopolio de una clase social.
