Replacing ‘ring girls’ with men slammed as anti-feminist

A former NRL cheerleader says the decision to replace the ‘ring girls’ in a boxing match with men was anti-feminist.

Promoters of the fight between Jeff Horn and Michael Zerafa at the Battle of Bendigo replaced the three ‘ring girls’ who were carrying traditional ring cards, with men.

It came after City of Greater Bendigo councillors said women in the role were being objectified and disrespected.

But the women were eventually brought back in after outrage from the crowd.

Former Bulldogs cheerleader and former Big League journalist Darcie McDonald tells Ben Fordham feminism is about giving women the freedom to choose.

“These people are speaking on behalf of young women who don’t have an issue. Why fix a problem if there’s no problem in the first place?”
