Channon, Alexander (2015)
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan UK
Languages: English
Types: Part of book or chapter of book
Subjects:
This introductory chapter presents a brief rationale for 'Global Perspectives on Women in Combat Sports: Women Warriors around the World', outlining some of the major theoretical concerns involved with conducting gender-sensitive analyses of the meanings of women’s engagement in such activities. As well as briefly introducing readers to the themes and issues covered throughout the rest of the volume, this chapter offers a rough typology of women’s combat sports and related activities. Drawing on previous social and historical research, this typology illustrates the multi-faceted, often contradictory relationships which exist between women’s participation and the maintenance or subversion of sexist formations of gender, thus aiming to sensitise readers to the complexities of these contemporary cultural phenomena.
