Fencing for ladies (foil ONLY, in those days & for decades to come!) Women fencers, the Glass Ceiling was in fencing as well. Only foil, only 4 points to win - men had to go for 5. I wanted to learn saber, but my father/teacher said women didn't fence saber. Period. I was rather upset. I wanted more "swash" to my "buckle".
