Join us for a screening of the documentary that tells the story of three sisters and other women who achieved international success as professional wrestlers in Columbus, Ohio during the 1950's-1970s.

This documentary chronicles the stories of Babs Wingo, Ethel Johnson, Marva Scott, Ramona Isbell and dozens of other women who braved racism and sexism to succeed in the male-dominated world of professional wrestling during the sport's golden age in the 1950's, 60's and 70's.  These courageous women raised families while blazing a trail for female athletes before many of the breakthroughs that resulted from the civil rights movement.  While many of their white peers have been inducted into wrestling halls of fame, these women have been largely forgotten as a part of history.
