Emergence of Women Defying Stereotypes in Sports and Games
April 15, 2013
     
   
   
   
   

Sports and gaming is a world that is typically dominated by men. In the US alone, major sports like basketball (NBA), American football (NFL), baseball (MLB) and hockey (NHL), plus soccer (MLS) – all of these are ruled by men. Even if there are women’s basketball (WNBA) and softball teams, they aren’t getting much attention from the public. In addition, some countries still don’t allow their women to participate in sports and games.

In 2012 however, the world has seen women defying stereotypes in sports and games especially in the Summer Olympics held in London. In particular, Saudi Arabia had opened up and sent women (who wore hijab) to this event and it is considered a great step forward. Another great progress in 2013 occurred when two women fighters squared off in the UFC’s famous octagon. Truly, women are gaining ground in terms of getting the respect they deserve in competing and winning in sports and games traditionally dominated by men.

World of Wrestling

In the world of professional wrestling, there are now women making their names in this sport.  Examples of women in professional wrestling who have attained success are: Cheerleader Melissa (who has been the one of the women pillars of Shimmer promotion and has been playing in independent wrestling game); Ayako Hamada (a Japanese-Mexican woman who packs great strength in a small frame and wrestles in TNA); Shimmer and AJW, and Mickie James (who have won titles to every promotions available today. However, she left WWE since that promotion is popularizing Barbie-doll like women wrestlers.

World of Poker

In other sports, particularly poker, there are quite few women who have been successful in winning against male opponents. Some of the women in the tournament of poker all over the world who made their own name are Vannessa Selbs - who is just 28 years of age and has won a total of more than $7 million as of this writing; Kathy Liebert - who has amassed more than $5.5 million in poker winnings up to this date; and Vanessa Rousso - who has won total of $3.4 million in poker winnings.  No doubt, with those winnings that appear in the record, these professionals probably make money off any new online casino, too. If you want to try your chances and luck in playing poker, try playing this card game online, especially if you are the type of woman who does not like to go out in public and gamble. You can find lots of legal and regulated online poker and gambling sites. Learn more about new casino websites,  click here.

World of Formula 1

Moreover, there may be few women in F1’s history, but there are some who actually raced and it was Maria Teresa de Filippis who first raced in Monaco Grand Prix in Monaco and Lella Lombardi who is the first woman to score in the race. She achieved this feat on Spanish Grand Prix in 1975.

Respect and honor must be given to women from every walk of life. Sports and games are not only for men; chance must be given to women to showcase their abilities, skills and talents.
