Roller derby, a full-contact sport on quad roller skates, has its origins as a coed sport in the 1930s. In 2001, the sport was revitalized as primarily a women's sport - although men do participate, most leagues in the United States are all-female and it is the female players who have often captured the attention of the media.
The Women's Center is excited to have representatives from two local roller derby leagues, the Fox Cityz Foxz and Paper Valley Roller Girls, participate in a panel on issues of women's empowerment in the sport. More information is forthcoming, but don't miss this opportunity to mark your calendars so that you can attend!
