The November issue of Men’s Fitness Australia features female UFC athlete Ronda Rousey. This particular shoot is a monumental moment for gender equality and female empowerment because it is the first time that a woman has ever been on the cover of Men’s Fitness Australia.
The cover shows the fierce female fighter with a stern look on her face and she is dressed as though she's ready to hop in the ring. The cover reads “how Ronda Rousey will make you tougher.” The cover is an honorable tribute to the athlete's years of hard work and dedication -- Rousey has achieved a successful career and hold the current Women's Bantamweight Champion title.
Other male fitness magazines have featured covers with the likes of Carmen Electra and Stacey Keibler, but this is a first for the Australia-based medium.
