Roller Derby Perception
So I was telling a friend of mine about Roller Derby (not everyone in the UK knows about the sport yet). We got chatting about the women that do the sport and how peoples perception of the players is well off the reality of it all.
Plenty of the people involved in Roller Derby have successful careers, are smart AND pretty, yet people still jump to conclusions that these women must be different to those you see in the street. Some breed of aggressive, thrill seeking, blood thirsty superwomen.
Ok, some of that might be true!
Since setting up this site and having been in contact with these ladies and having been to bouts and Derby organised events I can’t say enough how great these ladies are! Nothing is too much trouble, they are accommodating and they can kick ass if they need to.
As the old saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Which was what inspired these pieces of work.
Let me know what you think as any feedback is welcome.
