The History of Women’s Rugby
Rugby union games as played by women is an identical sport to the one enjoyed by male athletes, and the games feature the same rules; indistinguishable pitches; and equal equipment. Its history, however, is vastly different to that of male rugby union matches, due to a number of social pressures, and the character of the rugby union as a whole. These disparities have resulted in a history that is largely been hidden until relatively recently, but the women’s rugby union is slowly gaining a higher profile thanks to the increase in international tournaments for these games, and larger amounts of financial investments.
A more extensive acceptance of women’s rugby has lead to female versions of other major rugby union tournaments, with the female Five Nations having kicked off in 1999, and a growing amount of headlines.
