Street Football, Gender and Muslim Youth in the Netherlands Girls Who Kick Back
Based on her dissertation, for which dr. Kathrine van den Bogert conducted ethnographic research in a multicultural neighbourhood in The Hague, this book gives detailed insights into the challenges, negotiations and resistances girls with Moroccan-Dutch and Muslim backgrounds face in the world of street football.
Kathrine van den Bogert looks into the experiences of teenage girls who play football in public playgrounds. She addresses how race, ethnicity, religion, gender and citizenship are entangled in the access to and construction of the public street football spaces, such as football courts, urban playgrounds and public squares.
