In today’s society there is considerable focus on equality. However, women’s sport is still behind men’s in terms of participation rates and popularity. Some sports are still classed as male sports, one of which is boxing. Combat sports such as boxing are much more popular with men due to the traditional idealistic views of women and the bans or negative views of women that competed in these sports. Although this is very different today, the sport still generates pessimistic views. This study examines the history of women’s sport and boxing and the arguments against boxing in order to judge the morality of boxing for young girls, and decide whether encouraging young girls to take up boxing is acceptable.
