Escaramuza charra (made of girls and women only), Mexico.

Adelitas. This term was used for Mexican revolutionary women. This is what I call STRONG women, not like women today who call themselves "strong" because they have a big mouth. This women fought for their country their families and for what is right, and they fought side by side with man.

Few pastimes spark emotions as intense and as complex as bullfighting. For millions around the globe, the ritual in the ring is more art than sport; for countless others, the spectacle is mere barbarism. But aficionado or foe, few people readily associate women with the culture of the corrida. Gina Levay’s work is poised to change that. Drawn to their strength, tenacity, and magnetism, the Brooklyn-based photographer has, for five years, focused her lens on female bullfighters at work. On the occasion of a solo show, Bull Fight, at Hous Projects in New York, Levay spoke with LIFE.com about her eloquent exploration of the tension between “the beauty and brutality represented by these exceptional women.” Above: Torera Lupita Lopez, Mexico, 2010.
