In a sporting world often headlined by testosterone-charged men, women are usually marginalised, perhaps because they are seen as the weaker of the two genders. According to the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation, media coverage for women’s sport comes in at a mere five percent.

We believe it’s time females are given the same opportunities as their male counterparts to perform as well in sport. Continuing from our list of 7 'feminine' sports men should do more often, here are some sports that we encourage women to pick up.
