Damsels Doing Damage

Well I found a photo that features women in armor. Seems that these women of the former Radcliffe College in Cambridge, Massachusetts were in a starring role in some medieval campus production in 1955.

Radcliffe was a women's "Harvard" before Harvard University went coed in the 1970's and took control of the Radcliffe campus.

The women having a little tussle aren't in full armor but atleast they have protective helmets. The gentleman running the camera is keeping a good distance which I'm sure is intentional. Are they fighting to protect their damsels in distress' virtue?
