There’s a piece of yourself you can express on the football field... It is so emancipating, it’s indescribable.
— Tamara Jarrett, #27, LB/TE

Every Body Hit Somebody explores identity formation in full contact sport and gender equality in America through the documentation of the Carolina Phoenix, a semi-professional women's tackle football team based in Durham, North Carolina. 

Still photographs comprise the backbone of a corresponding film. The 43-minute experimental documentary is constructed from archival media combined with 16mm film, still photographs, and photo-elicitation interviews. Accounts from players and observations of them throughout their 2013 championship season testify to their strength and resilience in the face of barriers still imposed on women.
