Sports and athletics have always been a male domain and female athletes have always struggled to be taken seriously. Women are perceived as frail and delicate beings and they are not supposed to participate in activities that involve any kind of physicality. The traditional female roles require that women be limited to their homes and kitchens and their main interests be limited to looking sexy and getting married. when women want to pursue a career in sports, they always face stiff opposition in a society that equates sports with masculinity and hence does not find a place for women in the tight sporting circles. This opposition to female athletes starts right at home where parents and relatives often discourage young girls from pursuing a sporting career as it would mean being perceived as masculine and even a lesbian.
And this book is a true cautionary tale of bullies and enablers in girls' soccer, and the lessons we've learned along the way.
