In the 7th episode of the Women Box podcast , we bring you Go For It: Life Lessons From Girl Boxers, co-hosted by actor Rosie Perez. The hour-long special chronicles a year in the lives of the groundbreaking women (including 17-year old Claressa Shields) who fought for a chance to go to London for the first-ever Olympics to include women’s boxing.

Included: the inside-story of teenage boxer Claressa Shields journey from Flint, Mich., to London; a look at the risk of head injuries and why women boxers choose to fight, regardless; a portrait of boxing moms from around the world (Kenya, India, New Zealand and Venezuela); a visit backstage at the qualifying tournament for Team USA to witness the tears of a fighter whose years of training to make the Olympics ended when she failed to make the team.
