Men Vs Women

So the other night I discovered that a woman called Brittney Griner was about to be given a chance to try out for the all-male NBA team (second time in history a woman has been allowed to try out). Of course, it caused a stir with lots of very mixed opinions in the media and on Twitter, including lots of people calling it ’embarrassing’. I didn’t think this was very good for feminism, and it’s one of my top gripes when people call women ‘weak’ all the time.

So I went off and researched it more and wrote this post about it for the Telegraph.

Let me know what you think…. agree, disagree, indifferent?
