In an International Women's Day post on social media, Ebanie Bridges urged women to remain true to themselves.
Bridges currently holds the IBF bantamweight title and has gained significant attention for her bold self-promotion tactics, including lingerie weigh-ins and her highly successful OnlyFans account.
Despite receiving criticism for her approach, the Australian athlete posted an inspiring video on International Women's Day, hitting back at her detractors. In the video, Bridges acknowledged the backlash she had faced but expressed the importance of staying true to oneself, especially for women who have long been subjected to societal expectations and limitations.
Bridges emphasized the need for women to have the freedom to express themselves without fear of judgment or repression. She asserted that it's time for women to break free from outdated societal norms that have restricted them for years.
Bridges' message has resonated with many women, including talkSPORT's Laura Woods, who has been inspired by her approach to self-promotion.
Woods has praised the way Bridges has gone about marketing herself
During Bridges' recent appearance on talkSPORT Breakfast, Laura Woods expressed her admiration for the athlete, stating that she is one of her favorite women in the world of sports. Woods commended Bridges for her energetic personality both in and out of the ring and applauded her self-marketing tactics, highlighting that there's no one "correct" way for women to present themselves.
Woods praised Bridges for breaking free from societal norms and being a positive role model for women who want to express themselves freely. She went on to congratulate Bridges on her success and expressed excitement for her future fights.
