This is the first book to focus on women, sport and exercise in the Asia-Pacific region. Presenting a diverse range of empirical case studies, from women’s boxing in India and women’s rugby in Fiji to women’s soccer in North Korea and Japan, the book uses sport as a lens to examine the historical, socio-cultural and political specificities of non-western and post-colonial societies. It also explores the complex ways in which non-western women resist as well as accommodate sport and exercise-related socio-cultural oppression, helping us to better understand the nexus of sport, exercise, gender, sexuality and power.
