    Arrow Cholitas Luchadores: Bolivia's Female Wrestlers

    The fighting cholitas see themselves as symbols of strength: Their opponents include bigotry and sexism. “My goal,” says one fighter, “is to lift up indigenous women, who have been treated with contempt.”

    “We fighters carry within us a kind of fire that nothing can quench.”

    Why they fighting each other though? Shouldn't they be hunting down the gringos and beating them up?

    ^^^Perhaps that was a personal goal of that fighter because this seems to be part of a larger wrestling culture within Latin America. I read that this is even done Mexico. I would like to see the short film on them and see if that provides any more information as to the origins and/or goals...
