This blog is a collection of works about women and sports. They concern women’s football and rugby which are two sports popular in Britain and the sports where women are starting to be seen in the media. I discuss whether there enough opportunities for girls and women in football, rugby and sports in general. When researching it became apparent that win for any women’s sport was a win for every women’s sport. The availability of women’s sport and support has boosted the two sports. Grassroots sports has been at the base of this, giving women the courage to do the sports they want. Even as early as the 1990’s women’s football and rugby wasn’t recognised by the governing bodies. Fast forward 20 years and women’s sport has grown considerably and fostered a new generation of women’s sport stars. This is an ultimately positive change for women but it’s pointed out that there is always more to be done.
Hope you enjoy,
