Ella Es el Matador Conversation Starter: Matador Cristina Sanchez observes, “The law no longer bans us, but there’s still an unstated prohibition. In this world controlled by men, the top matadors have all the power.” In your opinion, why aren’t male matadors eager to share a bill with a woman or allow women to participate? Can you think of other sports that have excluded women? What do these sports share with bullfighting?
