Event Details

What does it mean to be a sporty woman in the 21st century? From the launch of Net-A-Sporter, serving up sports clothing for fashionistas, to the introduction of the #plankie selfie; exercise for women is suddenly fashionable. But why are there still so many obstacles for girls and women when it comes to ‘real’ sport? Why is it consistently defined as male territory and how can women reclaim their rightful place in the games, tournaments and matches around the world? Anna Kessel, chair and co-founder of Women in Football, sports writer for the Guardian & Observer and author of Eat Sweat Play argues that women need to reconnect with their bodies and reclaim sport for ourselves.
