Female Wrestling Fans - sharing your views

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am working on a project that sees me interviewing female fans and wrestlers for a podcast and series of articles. This may involve compiling all of the interviews into one place, which could also include articles by women who like to write about wrestling. Basically I feel women in wrestling do not get the share of voice they deserve and I want to share the fact women watch wrestling, women wrestle and they know as much as all the male voices we hear on podcasts that write the books we read.

Any there any female fans here that would be interested in such a project, be it an interview or writing an article/essay? If so just comment or send me a message.

I have already interviewed some UK indy talent and friends who are fans for articles I will publish soon, now looking to take this a step further.

Thanks

Jason

Oh well, I am guessing this is a No and we have a mainly male group

If any women are lurking please let me now. Information on the start of this project is below:

Holy Shoot Wrestling Podcast recently sat down with¬†Pro-Wrestling:EVEand¬†Lucha Britannia¬†performer¬†Heather Von Bandenburg¬†as part of our new interview series ‚ÄėHit Like A Girl‚Äô.

Across this series we will be speaking to female wrestlers, fans & industry members as we attempt to change the misconception that women don’t like wrestling.

Heather told some great stories as we had a chat about wrestling and Unladylike, her upcoming book on feminism and wrestling.

Hopefully this is of interest to everyone here, and you can give it a listen and share the episode to support Heather and Holy Shoot. We have plans to interview more wrestlers, writers and fans over the coming months.

I'm in the demographic that the current generation likes to take a pop at. Funnily enough, I have treated women as equals for decades. Having lived through the women's lib movement, girl power and whatever this current incarnation is supposed to be and much of which I find deeply patronizing towards females...that they need to be; encouraged, empowered by men, or each other, or any of that bollocks. Is this sort of thing not simply reinforcing those stereo-types. I do not doubt your intentions, but it ain't me stopping female wrestling fans or females in general doing anything they want. Perhaps with the caveat, don't expect any favours simply for being female. Equality means just that. Don't strive for equality(+), because that shit isn't acceptable either.

You have no idea how hard that made me laugh!

I guess some of the responses here highlight my point. I know a lot of woman I chat to about wrestling feel talked down to when they try and chat about wrestling with some men, or are made to feel not as welcome at some events. Women wrestlers I have spoken to also have felt they are assumed to not be equal to male wrestlers in terms of talent.

Hopefully the interviews I am lining up can show how many women love wrestling and the problems they face at times.
