This essay explores aspects of femininity by linking them to forms of masculinity. In doing so the author is using Judith Jack Halberstam’s Female Masculinity (1998) to try to explore other forms of masculinity and female masculinity that take place in lucha libre in Mexico. In particular, she will take a closer look at two luchadoras: La Comandante, who had her debut in 1995 and also fought under the name La Nazi (1995-2009), and Martha Villalobos, who had her debut in 1979. They do not simply repeat the normative roles assigned to women, nor do they merely imitate masculinity to abuse and dominate.
