Lucha Libre In Petticoats

Women have entered the fray in El Alto, Bolivia. 

Called the Flying Cholitas, these indigenous ladies eschew the masks of male wrestlers in favor of their traditional bowler hats and multi-layered, multi-colored skirts.

These photos come from Daniele Tamagni. The image below captures cholitas descending Illumani, another example of these womens' unwillingness to have their boundaries defined by others.
