Earlier chapters discussed various aspects of roller derby’s resurgence, from rules and league structure to three hurdles that would seemingly prevent women from playing, the extensive time and financial commitment, as well as the promise of serious injury. Other chapters examined the numerous benefits the women gain from playing, including improved physical and mental health, increased self-confidence, a larger social circle, new female friendships, as well as benefits tied to playing under a derby persona. I turn my focus in this chapter to consider what modern day roller derby means for broader issues of gender and power by attempting to answer the overarching question of my research study: Why derby?
