Combining the artistry of photographer Delilah Montoya with an informative introduction written by professor and librarian María Teresa Márquez, Women Boxers: The New Warriors explores the world of las malcriadas, those women who challenge societys views of femininity, violence, and physicality. Montoyas photographs profile twelve powerful, devoted athletes who are taking advantage of the Womens Movement and the right to live, work, and box in a mans world. The boxers featured are from all over the United States, and include super bantamweight Jackie Chávez, holder of the IFBA Super Bantamweight Title, light middleweight Akondaye "Storm" Fountain, welterweight Christy "Coalminers Daughter" Martin, and lightweight Mia "The Knockout" St. John, holder of the IBA Womens Lightweight Title and the IFBA Lightweight World Title. The introductory essay succinctly traces the phenomenon of women boxers, noting that as early as 1728 boxing matches between women were reported in London newspapers. Since 1997, womens amateur boxing competitions have been held in Europe, Africa, and Asia; countries such as Egypt, India and Kazakhstan are among 28 countries represented in womens boxing organizations. And womens amateur boxing may be sanctioned soon for the first time as an Olympic sport. In spite of the increased popularity of womens boxing, it remains controversial. Many still believe that women boxers are simply women who make a living by selling their bodies. Women boxers struggle to get televised matches and suitable prize money, and many boxing promoters refuse to support fights between female boxers. With an essay by C. Ondine Chavoya tracing Montoyas artistic career, this is a rare and fascinating look at the sport of womens boxing.
Not bad, as far as it goes. However, the word "new" in the title ignores the fact that some women have always engaged in combat sports. The word "warriors" ignores the fact that, in almost all cases, the objective was not simply to see which woman could fight better but to sexually excite the predominantly male spectators. On these subjects, see Martin van Creveld, Wargames: From Gladiators to Gigabytes, chapter 7.
The book contains black and white pictures and bios of quite a few female boxers, but it more similar to a magazine than a book. The only part I really enjoyed were the first few pages that explained the significance of women's boxing.
A well detailed collection of information on various female boxers whom have made a name for them selves in their own way. :]
Great action photographs; much needed recording of the lives of these under the radar athletes
