Dr. Sarah Kate Crews
Course Leader and Senior Lecturer in Performance and Media
My name is Sarah Crews, I am a performance studies scholar and senior lecturer in
Performance and Media. I am an avid boxing fan but I feel passionate that female boxers
are undervalued and underpromoted in the sport. Narratives of women’s boxing are often
misunderstood, dismissed or forgotten altogether. But female boxers occupy an important
position in popular culture and their work might help us rethink issues such as period shame,
violence against women, the limitations that young women and girls face in sport, and how
female bodies are critiqued and discussed in media more generally.
