1886 Bout Boxing Finger Gloves Nails Prefer Scratch Taught


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Mary Evans Picture Library captures a moment in history when the modern girl was being taught to prefer a bout with boxing gloves over a scratch with her fingernails. Dating back to 1886, this image showcases the evolution of women's participation in sports, particularly in the traditionally male-dominated world of boxing. In an era where societal norms dictated that women should be delicate and passive, this photograph challenges those expectations by depicting a group of ladies engaging in the physically demanding sport of boxing. The determination and strength exuded by these women as they spar with each other is truly inspiring. The juxtaposition of femininity and athleticism is striking in this image, as it highlights the empowerment that comes from breaking gender stereotypes and embracing one's physical capabilities. It serves as a reminder that women have always been capable of achieving greatness in any field they choose to pursue. As we reflect on this piece of history, we are reminded of the progress that has been made towards gender equality in sports and society as a whole. This print stands as a testament to the resilience and courage of women throughout time who have fought for their rightful place in arenas once reserved only for men.
