Young Boxing Woman Project (ages 12-15)
Empowering women to claim their space without apology.
The best way to improve your belief that you can, is to do. There is no need to apologise for taking up the space and time you need. You don’t have to be the best or the fastest, you just need to show up. This workshop includes 45 minutes of non-combat boxing which encourages participants to embrace discomfort in a supportive network of women and those who identify with womanhood. This is followed by a 45 minute, participant lead discussion about identity and what it means to claim your space.
About the Young Boxing Woman Project
The Young Boxing Woman Project is a not-for-profit using boxing to empower women to claim their space without apology. We use gaining competence in a challenging and confronting sport to assist our participants in developing self-awareness and confidence.
We use boxing as it perfectly mimics the challenges women face in the workplace. Women who succeed in boxing are the best of the best, they have drive, a willingness to try and the belief that you can and should. They have to push aside traditional views of female roles and define their own way.
