‘Unsuitable for Females’

by Carrie Dunn

The Rise of the Lionesses and Women's Football in England

This book tells the story of women’s football in England since its 19th-century inception, through its ban as ‘quite unsuitable for females’ to the successes of today’s teams. Carrie Dunn traces the history of the game through pen portraits of its trailblazers: the legends of the game who built the foundations of the stage upon which today’s stars flourish.
