Women in the ring

BBC Assembly about women boxers.

Women will be able to make history in the boxing ring at the London Olympics.

For the first time ever, women's boxing has been included on the programme of events at London 2012. Men have been able to box at the Olympics for over a hundred years.

MC Mary Kom from India dreams of being the first female Olympic boxing champion.

The 28-year-old started boxing ten years ago and it has sometimes been difficult for her to succeed in a male dominated sport.

Mary is from Manipur state in north-eastern India
Many people in Northern India where she is from have a low opinion of female boxers.

But through willpower, determination and courage, MC Mary Kom has literally fought her way to success and to break down stereotypes.

By 2009 she had won four world titles and since this video was made, she has won a fifth one.
