Description
"Shrill meets Brotopia in this personal and researched look at women's rights and issues through the lens of sports, from an award-winning sports journalist and women's advocate"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
From casual sexism, like condescending coverage of women's pro sports, to more serious issues, like athletes who abuse their partners and face only minimal consequences, misogyny in sports is home to a vast swath of gender issues that apply to all of us. DiCaro has been outspoken about the exploitation of the female body, the covert and overt sexism women face in the workplace, and the male-driven toxicity in sports fandom. Now she explores what America can do to give women a fair and competitive playing field in sports-- and the power to fight back. -- adapted from jacket
