Campaign: To encourage women to play rugby

I’m working with Fixers to eliminate the stigma around women’s rugby and to encourage other girls to take up the sport.  


I started playing rugby in high school and it's definitely had a really significant effect on my life. 


Female rugby definitely requires the same level of commitment, physical aspects and technical aspects as the men’s sport. 


I would like to get the message across to women and girls that rugby isn’t just a man’s sport and no matter how much stigma is behind it, you can do it.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
