Eat Sweat Play: Anna Kessel Recommends the Best Books on Women's Sport

'After years of being side-lined women’s sports books are finally having their moment in the sun.' When it comes to sport books, writing about women in sport has traditionally been relegated to the margins; but thankfully the picture seems to be changing. A sports journalist and a passionate campaigner for equality in sport and fitness, Anna Kessel’s latest book Eat Sweat Play explores how and why society has kept women out of sport and highlights the ways in which women are reclaiming  both their place in sport and in turn their own bodies. Here she offers her choice of the best women's sport writing, from new expert guides to women's health and fitness to revelatory sporting histories and personal testimonies of triumph over adversity.
