Sexualizing female athletes

opinion

The way female athletes are portrayed in the media is something that I take personal interest in, well, because I am one. I may not be competing on the world stage and fighting for the media attention over counterpart male Sexualizing female athletes, but even so, I think that the lack of athletic recognition of female in the media not only plays a huge role in motivating a woman to continue her athletic pursuits, but in how she sees herself as well.

The world of sport has developed and continues to develop primarily as a male endeavor; focusing on male skills and attitudes.

College Sports

There has been very little progress around sports that emphasize the physiological characteristics to which women are naturally superior.

However, I believe that this predominant male superiority is but one of the major contributing factors to women accepting the limitations on participation, or taking a second-class status in the athletic realm.
