That’s the question asked by Barbara Baird over at Women’s Outdoor News, regarding the blockbuster movie, The Hunger Games. Apparently, I’m way behind the times, having not yet read The Hunger Games series, nor seen the movie – though I’m hoping to remedy that situation next weekend.
Check out Barbara’s comments on THG, and her comparison of Katniss Everdeen (the heroine) with Stacey Huston, real-life bow hunter in “Is there a little feral ‘Kat’ in all of us?” – and let me know if you have read the books or seen the movie. I’d love to know what you think of them!
Publisher/Editor, Barbara Baird, over at Women’s Outdoor News, has a good post today about leading ladies in the shooting industry. She notes that in the shooting sports, women have been allowed to compete on a level playing field with men, and have risen to leadership positions in the industry, overall.
As Barbara said, “. . . are we seeing a paradigm here? Women tried to play football and no one attended the games. Women’s sports, even at collegiate levels, do not command the gate revenue that men’s sports do. But, in the shooting sports, where women shoot during the same tournament or match, yet compete against other women (and themselves, really), are we seeing the rise of women in leadership levels because they are allowed to compete alongside the men, and compete in other areas then, as well?”
