|An actual athlete!|
I haven't chucked 'The Red Bulletin' straight into the bin two months in a row, is this a record?
Cover story is skier Lindsay Vonn and inside you've got football goalie Emma Byrne - two pages - and sprinter Jodie Williams - five pages.
Great photos of all three women and really solid articles. What's happening to this bastion of male sport? *tongue in cheek btw for anyone reading this early in the morning*
If you're in Ireland, you can find the mag tucked inside today's Irish Times. And if not, some articles are online at Red Bulletin Magazine Ireland.
And while in one sense it shouldn't take a female journalist to highlight women in sport, I can't help feeling this Editor/writer below - Ruth Morgan -has a lot to do with the changes.
There has been the odd article on women here and there, but these last two issues really ramped it up.
Why am I giving this mag so much brain-space?
Simples - it's one of the few more mainstream mags covering the sports I love and they have mostly ignored women like me and you.
That's a complaint I could spill over into most print media to be fair but as RB positions itself as the alternative sports leader, you expect them to offer a genuine alternative.
What are your thoughts?
