Join the Carson Library for a screening of Ella Es el Matador in honor of Women’s History Month. While Spanish bullfighting is considered an exclusively masculine sport, several women became bullfighters, prompting a 1908 law forbidding their participation in the sport. This documentary explores the history of these women, as well taking a look at two contemporary female bullfighters. Come join us for this film on courageous women defying gender roles and norms. In preparation for the event, library materials on women’s struggles and achievements, as well as bullfighting, will be made available at a display. For more information, visit the Carson Library website.
