SCMP: New ‘Sporty Girl Journals’ tells inspirational stories of women smashing barriers
Four Hong Kong women release a book for young girls to see how others have blazed a trail in sport, with space to document their own ambitions too.
Four Hongkongers hope to inspire the next generation with a new book packed with stories of women breaking barriers. The Sporty Girl Journals offers accounts of women shirking stereotypes and taking on governing bodies for the right to participate in sport, and leaves space for the owner of the book to write about their own ambitions and experiences.
Alicia Lui, the book’s primary creator and founder of non-profit Women In Sport Empowered HK (WISE), said that women end up believing in their own negative prophecies from a young age.
