August 20, 2012 - Smutty Shout-Outs
Mary Kom just won a bronze medal at London 2012. She’s won 5 world championships. She is the MOST SUCCESSFUL amateur boxer IN HISTORY, man or woman, and a mother of two. From India. India produces some of the best female boxers in the world, did you know that? No. You didn’t. We didn’t. Because they receive very little recognition for their achievements. They are ridiculed for dedicating their lives to the sport, they are pressured to give it up to get married and have babies, they are pushed to their physical limits, and ...
They are incredibly inspiring.
Two filmmakers from Canada have been working on a documentary called With This Ring about the Indian women’s boxing team to raise awareness about these amazing athletes and to encourage other women to pursue their passions in the face of adversity. To complete the film, Anna and Ameesha are running a crowdfunding campaign -- they need just $6000 by Wednesday to reach goal.
