The Inequality of Sport: Women < Men

In lieu of an abstract, below is the first paragraph of the paper.
It has been 30 years since Title IX legislation granted women equal playing time, but the male-dominated
world of sports journalism has yet to catch up with the law. Coverage of women's sports lags far behind men's
and focuses on female athletes' femininity and sexuality over their achievements on the court and field. While
female athleticism challenges gender norms, women athletes continue to be depicted in traditional roles that
reaffirm their femininity - as wives and mothers or sex objects. By comparison, male athletes are framed
according to heroic masculine ideals that honor courage, strength, and endurance. (Playing Unfair, 2002)
