cold fjord (826450) writes "The Local reports, "The aesthetic and mental appeal of archery has been transmitted to a new generation of archers, part of an upswing that the Stockholm Archery Club said became very clear when the first of The Hunger Games trilogy made it to the Swedish silver screen in 2012. The tale of Katniss Everdeen, who teaches herself to hunt to feed her family in a poor and repressed district of a repressive state, sees the strong young woman turn her archery skills into survival gear when she is threwn into the arena with other children. Swedish teenage girls now make up most of the club's new membership, which has reached roughly 150 archers. While the sport has previously been a bit of a "lad's dominion" (gubbvälde), treasurer Kicki Priklonsky said that many girls have what it takes to excel at the sport. ... Across Sweden, membership figures in the clubs were up by 20 percent in 2013 compared to the year prior. Young teens made up the bulk of new recruits, and of them, the majority have been girls. ""
