This girl absolutely can! How to feel empowered in 2020

Who runs the world? Girls. Beyoncé said it first but let’s just reinforce that message. Here at Fashion North, we have been working on a piece with the concept of making women feel empowered in male dominated sports in the spirit of a healthy 2020.

The idea intends to contrast the stereotypes attached to femininity and place it in a rugged masculine environment. Our chosen sports were Basketball, American Football, Boxing and Rowing each are recognised as ‘men’s sports.’

We wanted to present a new outlook and change the mindset that assumes women doesn’t typically ‘belong’ in these environments.
