The New York Times - League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham

"At a little over a year old, the [Five-Borough Ladies Arm Wrestling League] is dedicated to raising money and awareness for women’s charities. It is a newer chapter of a national network called the Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers, which began in 2008 in Charlottesville, Va., as the project of workout buddies Jennifer Hoyt Tidwell and Jodie Plaisance. The popularity of the clashes led to similar groups springing up across the country. There are now seven member and four apprentice leagues in cities including Durham, N.C., and Austin, Tex."
