Why girls should be Vikings too
Girls can (and should) be heroes too.
Boys are pushed outdoors to climb trees, get muddy and throw things, whilst girls are encouraged to wear dresses and have tea parties indoors. A sweeping incendiary comment if ever there was one, but now I have your attention!
Why should boys get to have all the muddy, outdoors fun?
And why in university level sports do women suffer more serious non-contact injuries than men?
What do these two, seemingly unrelated, things have in common?
And why should parents care?
It has to do with some interesting conclusions that are starting to appear now that researchers have more facts and figures about athletes, both amateur and professional.
