Pavlidis, Adeele ; O’Brian, Wendy, Sport and feminism in China: On the possibilities of conceiving roller derby as a feminist intervention, Journal of Sociology, Vol. 53, no. 3, 2017, pp. 704-719

The spread of contemporary roller derby presents an opportunity to examine the ways sport can act as a form of feminist intervention. This article draws on a qualitative case study of a roller derby league in China, made up predominantly of expatriate workers, to explore some of the possibilities roller derby presents in activating global forms of feminist participatory action.
