Feminism and equal rights take a holiday in Pamplona, Spain, as some women there are demanding a variation of the famous “running of the bulls,” as the current system is lactose intolerant:
MADRID (Reuters) – Women in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona, world-famous for its ferocious bull-running festival, are demanding their own version complete with cows instead of bulls.
A student website, www.estudiln.net, set the ball rolling with its campaign “Cows want to run” which asks for a separate encierro, as the bull-runs are known, where only women are allowed to take part.
Women have been allowed to take part in the San Fermin bull-running for some years but they still represent a tiny minority of the thousands of runners who attempt to dodge 600-kilo bulls along an 800-metre course through the streets of Pamplona.
The students say it’s only logical that women should have their own bull-run.
They don’t want to compete in the same run as the men, and they admit it? Wow, if they’re not careful, these girls will end up running from angry feminists, which are far more dangerous than bulls.
Oh, and sorry about the title. Couldn’t help myself. It’s better than my other option, which was “Udder madness in Pamplona.”
