This article caught my eye , as I am stunned to find out that young female boxers are not even paid enough to cover there travel to these fights , so if they haven’t got sponser’s then they are pushed in to posing on the covers of men’s magazines to top up there earnings and promote there fights , as men like to watch attractive women fight each other ! , they are profestional sports women and they are treated like pieces of meat for male entertainment ! This really gets to me ! I went go on to much as the article is really informative as what the women go through to do the sport they love so much !
I think we as women should support our piers and go see a female boxing match , a women’s football team or a female rugby team to get the women in sports more exposure more wages , it may just change things for the women .
I would love to hear from you if your a women in boxing or any male dominated sport and you have experienced sexism ! Or if you have an opinion in this maybe you think women should not do boxing or men’s sports !! Or you may just want to show your support to the women in sports !! I would to here your comments .
