Playing unfair : the media image of the female athlete
- Main contributors
Alper, Loretta; King, Kenyon; Jhally, Sut
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.
