What is the role of sports in our culture? How do gender “roles” play out in sports? What is the effect of media coverage and spectatorship? What is the interplay with feminism? How should sports respond to misogyny, homophobia and transphobia? Two events --the passage of Title IX, , which opened the way for women’s greater participation in sports in the U.S., and the beginning of the Summer Olympics in London-- bring these issues to the fore and we'll be exploring them with contributors to the latest edition of On the Issues MagazineLevel the Playing Field: Girls, Women and Sports.
