The Wider Image: Chinese boxer trounces stereotypes to become 'Queen of the Ring'
Huang Wensi play-fights with her brother-in-law at home in Lianjiang, Guangdong province, China, June 30, 2018. Due to a cultural preference for boys over girls, Huang's parents never cared much for her opinion, but her success as an athlete has improved her standing in the family. Huang is one of a small but growing number of women in China to embrace professional boxing, relishing its intense nature despite traditional stereotypes that steer women away from such activities. "A women is not just limited to being a wife or mother in the house," she said. REUTERS/Yue Wu SEARCH "WU BOXER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
