Woman! This is a word that means different things to different people. A woman is the foundation of any society because she bears the children that will one day grow up to become the society. However women are almost always attached with stereotypes and their efforts are undermined and overshadowed by the men. Women are thought to just stay home, have children, cook food and serve others. But the woman of today is all that and much more. She can excel at work outside the home the same way she does at home.
Sports women have been shutting people up and breaking stereo types. Sports is still a heavily male dominated area and girls are discouraged to take part in them. But every now and then a girl steps out of her home to pursue her passion is sports and makes her nation proud. That is when all these haters shut up and start praising them.
Today we’re going to look at the top 10 gorgeous sports women who broke all stereotypes.
