Roller Derby started in 2001 as a countercultural movement; lots of piercings and full-sleeve tattoos were the norm. She’s not doing it now, but for 7 years on and off she skated and coached.
But over time it’s become an outlet for lots of women; on her league, Kirsten says there are lawyers and vets and teachers, and a TON of moms! I could totally see how roller derby gets out all that pent-up rage you might have inside. It’s a 3 night a week commitment, plus games and volunteer hours.
