Why stuntwomen are in more danger than men
An interesting look at how dubious costume choices/designs can significantly increase the level of danger that must be faced by real-life women (stunt performers, in this case) working to portray fictional characters.
An oft overlooked factor when people insist that this is all just make believe and so doesn’t really matter.
It goes without saying, of course, that if trying to do stunts in carefully controlled environments becomes more dangerous due to ridiculous costumes then those same outfits raise the dangers in a chaotic environment (such as a battlefield) exponentially.
