Description

With the phenomenal success of the England Football team at the Euros 2022, this book meets the renewed interest in women in sport. It provides a fascinating overview of the history of women in sport from centuries past to the present day, demonstrating the leaps forward that sportswomen have taken since 1945, as well as an inspiring account of great female Paralympians. The 25 profiles of incredible female pioneers and legends evidence the grit and determination required to challenge discrimination, to break records and demolish outdated notions of the weaker sex. The recent investment in women’s sports, as seen for football, rugby and cricket, has driven greater popularity and success. This book also includes a wonderful selection of interviews with over 25 women competing in a wide range of sports today, as well as leading figures in the industry, coaches, referees, presenters, and broadcasters. Includes colour photos throughout.

Advance Praise

“50 Women in Sport is the sort of book I love. Consumable, interesting, well put together and in many ways inspirational. It has given me the impetus to recruit more female writers, as well as run more features on women’s sport in general.

A great gift for any sports fan but maybe especially apt for young aspiring female sporting participants. It’s a real dose of inspiration.

I’d highly recommend the book to anyone.”
