Women in Fighting Sports-Not A New Event

Jan 11, 2015

Sat. 1/10/15:  Writer, scholar, and former fighter L.A. Jennings tells the story of women boxers, wrestlers, and martial arts fighters-their history, motives, victories, and how they fought to join in professional sports.

Jennings says, unless we tell the history of women in fighting sports, "we're always going to be the 'new kids' and that's a problem." Woman want to show that we've been a part of the history of these sports and we are part of growing the future. Jennings brings a feminist point of view to analysis of the history of women in fighting sports.
