Besides, no matter how toughened a sportswomen may be, her organism is not cut out to sustain certainshocks. This chauvinistic statement was made by Baron de Coubertin who was the founder of the Modern Olympic Games. It is noteworthy that he did not allow any women to compete in the first Modern Olympic Games, which took place in Athens, Greece in 1896. The author having fiercely reacted to this statement,was compelled to write a book. This is a fascinating book telling the many daring andincredible stories of the tough, courageous, and determined women, who throughouthistory have proved the Barons statement to be incorrect.
