"Frauen machen heute alles … es ist einfach nicht aufzuhalten, dass sie auch boxen." (Hans-Joachim Rauschenbach)
Während erfolgreiche männliche Boxer als aktiv, stark, aggressiv und ehrgeizig gelten, werden Frauen mit diesen Eigenschaften häufig als "unweiblich" wahrgenommen. Boxerinnen verstoßen gegen gängige Frauenbilder und müssen in der Vermarktung ihrer sportlichen Leistung verschiedenste Hürden nehmen.
Die Profiboxerin und Weltmeisterin Heidi Hartmann analysiert, unter welchen historisch-gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen sich Frauenboxen im Deutschland des späten 20. Jahrhunderts entwickeln konnte und was once der Eintritt in diesen von männlichen Handlungsmustern, Werten und Idealen geprägten game für Frauen bedeutet. Sie untersucht Wechselbeziehungen von Akteurinnen, Akteuren und Feldbedingungen und ermittelt sowohl Möglichkeiten als auch Grenzen einer Karriere.
