Play Like A Girl

Author(s): Kate T. Parker

Sport | Gender Studies

Women's soccer is Kate's first love, and in this new book she brings together a powerful collection of photographs of players of all ages and skill levels, from the charismatic Megan Rapinoe (see below) and ultimate soccer mom Jessica McDonald to the legendary Michelle Akers to girls as young as four who are just learning to kick the ball.

Organised into ten chapters around ten life lessons that the game has to teach, and with quotations from each of the subjects photographed, it's an inspiring celebration of that very special power the game of soccer has to shape the lives of young women.

  • How it builds confidence.

  • Develops the chemistry of teamwork.

  • Instills body positivity.

  • Teaches them how to accept both winning and losing.

  • And above all, how it gives girls the freedom and space to be fierce, funny, competitive--and to play really hard.
