Season 6, Episode 6
“Girl Wrestler” follows a young Texan as she wrestles in tournaments (against boys, mostly) and ruminates on her life, her sport and the gender issues raised by her participation in it. Tara Neal can outwrestle most girls. Trouble is, there aren't many for her to wrestle, so she must compete against boys. She can do this until she's 14, and as this profile begins, she's 12. Tara's annoyed by sexism, but she's troubled mostly because the clock is winding down, and she just loves to wrestle.
