|Spotlight on The Quake, a professional women's tackle football team.|
Ladies of the Gridiron (Briana Young, United States, 2010; 35 min.) When most think of American Football, then imagine raw, unbridled demonstrations of athletic might pushed to the max, but rarely do those images involve women. The Quake is a professional women's tackle football team out to break the glass ceiling of this traditionally all-male sport. These women embody the same dogged determination as their male counterparts, but without the money or fame. And beyond that, they must deal with a societal prejudice that keeps them on the periphery of professional sports, having to pay their own way even as other female athletes--such as those in the Lingerie League--draw a salary.
