Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A comprehensive and fascinating illustrated look at women’s professional wrestling, including 100 profiles of superstars from around the world.
Women’s pro wrestling has existed in the USA since the 1930s, and this colorful encyclopedia references the fashion, fun, and drama of the sport through the years and around the world. Focusing on 100 competitors—from current faves Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair, to Germany's Jazzy Gabert, Japan’s Io Shirai, and Canada's LuFisto, to legends like The Fabulous Moolah, Sable, Ivory, and Lita—it includes relevant stats and each one’s compelling story. Written by noted authority LaToya Ferguson, this engaging history is great for anyone interested in powerful women, fantastic costumes, and pro wrestling itself.

LaToya Ferguson writes for The AV Club and Paste Magazine as well as The Guardian, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, IndieWire, and more. She regularly covers professional wrestling in a variety of outlets online and was also a part of The Story of Wrestling podcast with Alasdair Wilkins and Kyle Fowle. She lives in Los Angeles, CA.
