These ladies may be the Bennett sisters, but they could do things Jane Austen characters certainly couldn't -- unless we missed the chapter of Pride and Prejudice about women's boxing.
The above photo, taken between 1910 and 1915 and posted on Reddit by user Iamducky, shows these Bennett women boxing as part of their Vaudeville act. However, this wasn't the sisters' only talent. Not only did they box, they also wrestled. We're betting that if you had these women by your side, you'd never get messed with.
