Eat Sweat Play
"It's time for women the world over to reconnect with their bodies."
Sweating has never been so hot, but why then are there still so many obstacles for girls and women when it comes to exercise? At what point did sport become work, and not play? When did we lose our sense of fun, and at what cost? And why are sportswomen endlessly sexualised or demonised by the media?
Kessel opens the conversation on body dysmorphia and bingo wings, menstruation and menopause, parenthood and the pay gap, while challenging the current foundations of feminism and sport's role in gender politics.
Part manifesto, part how-to, Eat Sweat Play is a call to arms for women to take back their bodies for themselves. From the mouths of sportswomen, Sporty Spice and Mumsnet CEOs to personal accounts from the author, this is the book every one – man, woman or child – should read.
