    Iview with award-winning journalist Melissa Ludtke re women in sports

    in Sports

    Join David, Bill and special guest award-winning journalist Melissa Ludtke LIVE. Discussion will be on women in sports relating to the different way that sports reporters cover female athletes vs. male athletes and challenges to female sports reporters, both today and in the past.

    Melissa Ludtke is an acclaimed award-winning journalist who has reported for Time magazine, CBS News, and Sports Illustrated. She edited Nieman Reports at Harvard University’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism for 13 years. To pursue her writing in social and political justice issues, she was awarded academic fellowships from Harvard University, Radcliffe College, and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. In 2010 Ludtke received the Yankee Quill Award for lifetime achievement as a journalist.

    Ludtke made history while covering baseball as a reporter for Sports Illustrated. After Commissioner Bowie Kuhn denied her access to interview ballplayers in team locker rooms, Time Inc., the company that owned Sports Illustrated, filed a federal lawsuit (Ludtke v. Kuhn). The lawsuit claimed that Major League Baseball’s media policy of providing unequal access to women reporters violated her rights under the Fourteenth Amendment by depriving her of the liberty to fully pursue a career in sports reporting. In September 1978, a federal judge agreed, establishing equal access to locker rooms for women reporters. Her papers related to this groundbreaking suit are archived at Harvard’s Schlesinger Library, and her oral history of this period in time is preserved as part of the Washington Press Club Foundation’s Women in Journalism oral history project.
