DREA - AKA MURDER SHE ROLLED
"It's inevitable somebody brakes a finger, brakes an ankle. It is really scary when you see a wall, four really strong women and they want to hit you."
"Murder She Rolled is my alter ego. I just become somedy different, I become somebody really full of energy, it lets me just feel like I'm invincible."
"The diversity of body sizes, of sexual orientations and gender identity... it's really incredible. Life without Roller Derby is too scary for me."
Roller derby looks like a powerful, aggressive sport for strong women; but is this true? Drea, a Canadian woman who through this sport has found a reason to smile and a place to feel fully accepted and free to express herself, talks about the unity and shared respect between its participants. Roller derby proves to be a sport that all women can do and where each identity is respected.
