In Egypt, Saturday nights are for staying in — the workweek starts on Sunday. But for the members of CaiRollers, Egypt’s first all-female roller derby team, it’s for skating.

The team’s 20 members meet for three hours every week, at the Cairo International Stadium’s outdoor handball courts, to practice. It’s an aggressive game, requiring full body contact like hip and shoulder checks. But that’s why players like Lina El-Gohary, 27, love it.

“It makes you believe that you’re still able to learn at any age. It empowers you,” she says.

Two American women, Shaneikiah Bickham and Angie Malone-Kaster, brought the sport to Egypt in 2012. They were working in Cairo as teachers and had previous experience playing roller derby in the U.S. They had a hunch their Egyptian girlfriends would dig the game, so they organized a team and started practicing in the school’s parking lot.

The American women were right: Roller derby was a hit. While the game is not commonly known in Egypt — more than half the world’s amateur roller derby teams are from the U.S. — the CaiRollers managed to keep running even after the two co-founders left the country in 2014.

Goat and a pig

A couple of livestock, livin’ the life stuck together in harmony

A pig and a goat, showing the world that a pig and a goat can be family

Love so strong, love so big, such a beautiful

Goat and a pig

Bound in matrimony now and forever

Shopping for groceries and buying a condo and filing their taxes together

Goat and a pig, GOOOOOOAAAT AND A PIG

There is power in a factory, power in the land
Power in the hands of a worker
But it all amounts to nothing if together we don’t stand
There is power in a Union

Now the lessons of the past were all learned with workers’ blood
The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for
From the cities and the farmlands to trenches full of mud
War has always been the bosses’ way, sir

The Union forever defending our rights
Down with the blackleg, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a Union

Now I long for the morning that they realise
Brutality and unjust laws can not defeat us
But who’ll defend the workers who cannot organise
When the bosses send their lackies out to cheat us?

Money speaks for money, the Devil for his own
Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone
What a comfort to the widow, a light to the child
There is power in a Union

The Union forever defending our rights
Down with the blackleg, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters together we will stand
There is power in a Union!
