I am writing to express my approval to the article “Women’s boxing at the London 2012 Olympics: raging belle” published on March 8th, 2010 where it states that women’s professional boxing may be accepted worldwide at the Olympics 2012. I agree with it, because as a feminist I state that women have to have the same rights as men, that we have the same strength, and that this will mark women’s representation at the Olympics forever. But I strongly disagree with what people say that women boxing are not very nice to watch.It is my firm belief, that first of all, women and men should be treated the same in all aspects, because we were created equally and we can do all the same things, and play the same sports, no matter what they are and you can’t make difference in relation to the sex you have, because that is not fair.
We (women) work as hard as men and we have the same dreams, as in this case, winning the golden medal.Second of all, women in this sport, as men, make enormous sacrifices and this is a sport that has just started growing, and in my opinion it will reach high peaks, because we do not know what to expect and will make women’s power grow, and we will have opportunities to choose freely, because now a days the world is ruled mainly by men, and the society is centered that there are some games that men can play that women can not. So women’s professional boxing being accepted will change that, in a good way, just like women’s professional tennis, where men would not like to see women play, because they where so delicate and would get hurt.But from what the article says, women are more committed than men. When we want something we don’t stop until we have obtained it.
Since they do not want to get hurt, female boxers rely mostly on technique and trainers say that women have fewer issues because they are very focused and extremely dedicated.Third of all, can you judge negatively a woman playing a “manly” sport when you have never seen it? It is my opinion that, that is not even an excuse for people not to care about it, and to say that you are against women’s boxing, because you are judging them on the sport their playing when you have never seen it. So I believe women’s boxing being accepted worldwide will definitely change this, it will make people realize, what advanced they really are and appreciate the beauty of the sport. People also say that women’s sport is “underdeveloped, uncompetitive and of poor quality”, but the person who said it has seen it? I believe that he hasn’t, because as a feminist, I was able to see Kate Ryan box and she is amazing, I truly believe that this opportunity for female boxers will change how people will see this sport, it will change their perspective.In conclusion I believe that women’s boxing will change the way we see this, it will show the world that women are tough and strong and can compete at all levels.
It will show that their effort is worth the risk of suffering and it will also equalize men and women of all the world, so that no one is different or inferior and is not available to do that sport because of your sex.So my recommendation is that you go and see that ladies fight, because they will be great, and I hope that the comity decides to let them play the game they really love and is their passion.
