BC: In my opinion I would say that the answer to my question would be "yes" because women like the famous five have contributed to reform womens' rights not just in sports but in many areas of their community. Certainly more women participate in sports now than compared to 80 years ago.

7: Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a team sport played on ice. Skaters direct the puck into the opposite teams net to score a goal. Did you know hockey is also the official national winter sport of Canada? Ice hockey is one of the 4 major north American professional sports. The National Hockey League, or the NHL, is considered the highest level for men. There are two professional leagues for women, the first being the CWHL or the Canadian Women's Hockey League, and the second being the WWHL, Western Women's Hockey League.
8: Womens Hockey The Marquette Iron Rangers of the USHL signed the first female professional hockey player in the season of 1969-1970. Womens ice hockey was added as a medal sport in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. | The chief difference between mens ice hockey and womens ice hockey is that checking is not aloud. If a woman checks another woman it is either a major or minor penalty. Checking became against the rules after the 1990 Womens World Championships because female players in many countries didn't have the mass compared to the North American players. In addition, women competing in leagues must wear full-faced masks. One woman, Manin Rheaume appeared as a goaltender for the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning in some preseason games against the St. Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins.

On February 11th, 1891, one of the earliest newspaper accounts of seven-a-side game between women appeared in the Ottawa Citizen.
10: As a result, the opposition, who are usually men, felt uncomfortable about interrupting a tea, especially a pink tea and would generally avoid interfering in order to avoid embarrassment. The good hearted men, who generally feared for the safety of their wives at political meetings were far more comfortable about their loved ones attending a pink tea. | The Pink Teas Pink Teas were developed as a way for women to gather and discuss various issues of importance including suffrage and politics. Only women were invited, and frilly decorations, cookies, china and many pink doilies crowded the tables.
