This panel brings together six papers exploring several different aspects of women’s participation in various martial arts and combat sports, each from a gender-sensitive perspective. All of the authors are current contributors to an edited text, due for publication with Palgrave Macmillan mid/late-2015, entitled ‘Global Perspectives on Women in Combat Sports: Women Warriors around the World’, with each presentation broadly mirroring its authors’ respective chapters within this forthcoming volume. We propose that the papers – abstracts attached below – could be scheduled in the following order, possibly divided into two (consecutive) sessions if needed.
