Chicks, Kicks And Glory


Exhibition about the lives and dreams of kickboxing, Moroccan-Dutch women, illustrated by seven cartoonists in the Gemaal op Zuid. Kickboxing is becoming very popular in the larger cities, even for young women. What is remarkable is the increasing number of women kickboxers of Moroccan descent. And they are proud of their discipline and their bruises. With varying degrees of success and failure, they make their sport a part of a, sometimes religious, urban girl's life.
