Jezebel have announced this piece of news: BBC to air women’s boxing
I for one am quite delighted by this.
Not that I am a big boxing fan, but I like to see women showing that they can fight it out in the ring as much as men can. Sport is an area where ‘traditional’ stereotypes of femininity just don’t hold water.
So long as they don’t come on wearing fluffy pink dressing gowns and ridiculous gold lame tracksuits like the boys, I think these girls are going to beat the crap out of some tired old gender cliches.
