Q: Doesn't Hillary Swank's depiction of a boxer in Million Dollar Baby promote the defeminization of women?

A: Yes - but that's not the main reason we're against women's boxing. In our opinion, no matter how hard women train, their bodies are not made to withstand the brutal punishment meted out int he ring, and they are more susceptible to irreversable injuries than men. We disagree with USA Boxing's decision to lift its ban on women in the sport in 1993.
