Women have been wrestling in Mexico since the 1930s. Decades later, lucha libre is part of a sport that is still dominated by men. More and more girls dream of making a career in the ring, but headline female shows remain rare. Multimedia reporter Marta Franco spent almost a month documenting the lives of several female wrestlers and the meaning of lucha libre in Mexican culture. She met the women and their families and got to know their dreams, aspirations and the reasons why they endure a world that is often full of suffering, misunderstandings, and challenges. All these women share a love of their sport and each one has an amazing story to tell.
