"Spent a year following some of the most famous - and not so famous - female footballers in the country, to see what the holds for women's football. Tells the tale of an increasingly popular, yet still underrepresented sport." --SheKicks.net
"A well thought out and well researched piece of work that covers the women's game from top to bottom. A comprehensive overview of the football pyramid in this country, raising questions and discussing important issues that impact those involved in the game. There's something here for everyone." --Kieran Theivam, women's football writer
"Superbly researched and with excellent access to players and officials alike, Carrie Dunn's book is a fascinating, and essential, survey of the state of women's football." - Football writer Alex Stewart
Selected as one of four Books of the Month in The Football Book Calendar, August to November 2016. -- OfPitchAndPage.com
"Crisp and humane writing. I wish I had the psychic or persuasive powers to push The Roar of the Lionesses up on to the bestseller lists. A book that is rooted in the joy and pain of sport. Not only do 'the girls' know how to play football as well or better than 'the boys'; the best of 'em write about it just as well as the boys do too." --ByTheBookReviews.blogspot.co.uk

A great read
As a Women's Football fan I've always had a lot of questions about how things worked and why decisions were made the way they were like:
Why was Women's Football banned between 1921 and the end of the 20th Century?
What are the differences between Women's Super Leagues and Women's Premier Leagues?
Who is most likely to steal my spare shinpads at a 5-a-side tournament?
Why are some women paid to play whilst others have to pay to play?
Why did Wycombe support Reading Ladies and not Wycombe Ladies?
Does the FA care about Women's Football? Does FIFA for that matter?
Why can't I watch Women's Football on TV as often as other sports?
Thankfully Carrie Dunn provides all the answers, and a lot more to boot. I've discovered that fish and chips for winning an away match can be a bigger incentive to some players than others (because they prefer saveloys).Read more ›
