Sexismus im Actionsport: Wie Frauen ihre Möglichkeiten besser nutzen können

Der Actionsport hat ein Sexismus-Problem. Deswegen entstand mizzi.at, um Sportlerinnen eine Plattform zu bieten, auf der sie gesehen werden, wo ihr Können im Mittelpunkt steht und wo andere Mädchen und Frauen sie als ihre Vorbilder entdecken können.

PULS, das junge Programm des Bayerischen Rundfunks, hat das Problem anhand des Munich Mash, eines großen Actionsport Festivals in Deutschland, wo leider nur Männer an den Contests teilnehmen durften, mal näher beleuchtet.
Dabei entstanden nicht nur ein toller Fernsehbeitrag und ein Kommentar der Redakteurin Claudia Gerauer, sondern auch eine Ausgabe des Podcasts PULS Spezial, bei dem ich als eine von 5 GesprächspartnerInnen Rede und Antwort stehen durfte. Interviewt wurden auch Vali Höll (Mountainbikerin), Sophie Knechtl (Sportwissenschaftlerin), Yvonne Labedzki (Organisatorin Suck my Trucks Contests) und Nico Zacek (Organisator Nine Kings / Nine Queens)

-> Den Podcast zum Nachhören gibt es hier: BR.de

 

Wer den Beitrag lieber per Digitalradio, Kabel oder Satellit hören will, hat dazu morgen, am Samstag, den 29.07. von 18:00 – 20:00 Uhr Gelegenheit, die Wiederholung läuft am Sonntag von 12:00 – 14:00 Uhr!

mizzi.at on Radio FM4

recently, i received a message from Simon Welebil, who works for austrian radiostation FM4, asking if i was interested in giving an interview about my all-female-shred-blog mizzi.at – i didn’t take me long to make a decision, of course i wanted to be part of it.

a few days later, Simon and i met up at karlsplatz, which is conveniently situated for both of us, right in the middle between FM4 and my workplace.
we sat down near the fountain and talked a bit, before Simon started recording the interview. it was a nice conversation and i’m pretty happy with how the interview turned out.
a small part of it was broadcasted in the FM4 morning show on the 11th of may, the longer part could be heard in connected on the same day.

luckily, i am now able to share the audio files with you, so you can listen to what i have to say about mizzi and my motivation to run the site.
the feature is in german.

my first tv show – W24

tomorrow, i’ll be the guest of a tv show for the first time in my life.

i was asked to attend a discussion on the topic of freeriding. thanks to Volker Hölzl of programat/Freeride Experience for recommending me!

the show is hosted by Gerhard Koller, with whom i’ve already talked about the show on the phone last week.

the show will be broadcasted on W24, which is a regional tv station in vienna.

as soon as i know the broadcast dates, i’ll post them. as far as i know at the moment, broadcasting will start next week, with a premiere and several reruns of the show over time.

W24 offers a livestream on its website and the show might also be available for viewing online for a while.

i’m looking forward to this experience. i’m excited and curios how it will feel to be on tv. i’m going to bring a bit of my equipment as well, which i will explain on the show.

i’ll keep you updated! keep your fingers crossed for me!
