Summary
"This two volume collection addresses women's sport involvement in contemporary society with a focus on issues of equity that women currently face. Through empirical and conceptual analyses of women's current experiences in a diverse array of sports roles-- from recreational through professional levels as athletes, coaches, referees, and administrators-- this collection provides a comprehensive overview of the "the state of women in sports." The volumes' overarching framework is sociological and examines the state of women in sports by questioning dominant ideology surrounding biological notions of athletic inferiority and interrogates social constructs which affect women's experiences in sports, such as race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, and physical size. However, the contributions in this collection are also multidisciplinary and include research grounded in sociology, psychology, communications, gender studies, education, cultural studies, anthropology, and history, to explore the diversity, challenges, and achievements of women in sport. The volume's broad international scope also contextualizes women's experiences in sports within culturally diverse patriarchal societies." --
