Description

Hope Powell was a skinny little black girl from South London who only ever wanted to play football. Brought up in a violent home, she was actively discouraged from playing. The original Bend It Like Beckham girl, this is the amazing story of how a kid from a Greenwich housing estate became one of the most influential women in world football. A revered international footballer and then, for fifteen years, manager of England, Hope Powell will forever be the face of English women's football. She took the national game from amateurism to top-flight performance - and dedicated herself to opening up the sport to hundreds of thousands of girls and young women at the grassroots level. A black, gay woman who's been a relentless pioneer for equal rights, the story of her battles against authority are an object lesson in how determination and bravery can make a lasting change.
