This project looks at the subculture of female skaters, a group of women who’ve dared to delve into the male dominated sport of skateboarding. We’re constantly seeing more women in the media breaking the rules and conventions of what it means to be a woman. Skater girls are stereotyped as rebellious because skating is not usually associated with women, so I wanted to meet some and hear what they had to say about being judged as a female skater and the ways in which skating has influenced their lives.
