This chapter does a real good job in covering how women in sports have been treated over the years. It goes into great detail on the problems women had to over come while playing in sports. Such problems as not being treated the same as men even though they play the same game. They are also faced with being stereotyped like they are not as good as men in sports. Women have not always got the same recognition as men in sports. Probably the biggest problem is tha women have not been paid the same amount as men who are doing the same sport they are doing. But the chapter also goes over how over time women athelets are beginning to receive more and more recognition,money,and popularity. And women are becoming more of a household name like men are. Gender in sport may still have along way to go as fair as women being on the same level as men but with help from former women athletes maybe the future will be better for the young girls who want to became professional athletes.

Hello! My name is Donald but I go by Donny. I graduated from high school way back in 1995. I was a football player for Banks County football team. After high school I got married to my wife Jennica Moore (Dr. Moore who teaches accounting at Piedmont). We have two children; Madison Moore who just graduated from Piedmont and Carson Moore who is graduating from high school in May. After high school, I worked in the cell phone tower industry for several years. For the past ten years, I have owned my own tree service business. I will be graduating in May 2018 at the ripe old age of 41. I’m taking this class as an elective in my history degree program because I love sports. I’m looking forward to this class!
