London 2012 was THE Olympics for female athletes - here are our favourite moments - MSM News
True feminism, in our opinion, isn't one where we say we're better than the boys, but where we say we're every bit as good as them and deserve the same treatment. But the ugly truth is that in sport, things are far from equal, and women's sports just doesn't get the same level of money and accolade it deserves.
So for anything to change, something momentous, historic and truly earth-shattering would have to take place and the London 2012 Games has been the place where female athletes from all over the globe have proven their worth time and time again.
Our own Katie Taylor proved herself in the male-dominated world of boxing, taking a gold medal in the lightweight category (60kg) - the first time Women's Boxing has been included as an Olympic sport.
The women, it appeared were the stars of the Olympics - breaking world records, overcoming incredible personal obstacles and putting their countries in the spotlight, rather than the men. And through it all, they have done so with utter humility and grace.
