    The Rugbywomen is a documentary project realized in Sarcelles, a marginalized suburb in the north of Paris. It explores the daily life of a female rugby team of a local high school. In spite of the image of being a "rude sport", rugby promotes values such as teamwork, respect, discipline, humility and solidarity. In addition, it encourages self-confidence, and in consequence, the rugbywomen accept and esteem their bodies.

    Camilo, I love this series of strong women playing a rugged sport. I've never played myself, but had friends that played and I have the utmost respect for these athletes! I love that in this one frame you're including action, the rough and tumble nature of the sport and in your caption you include notes about how this sport encourages self confidence. It's a win!
