Abstract

Each of the chapters in this book have offered a thought provoking exploration of the gender assumptions that shape sporting bodies, capacities, and relations of inclusion/exclusion. Importantly, the collection as a whole has made visible women’s influence on contesting and transforming action sport as a ‘generative’ cultural practice (Ahmed, 2004, p. 155), while historical omissions have also been given critical attention. In this closing chapter, I reflect upon how the various action sport feminisms in this collection articulate a set of concerns about embodied experience, new media representations and contested notions of ‘empowerment’ within the context of contemporary cultural and feminist debates.
