Chapter 6 Gender In Sports

This chapter talks a lot about how women in sports have faced a lot of adversity. They have gone through many problems like being treated very differently than their male counterparts even if they play the same sport. Womens sports do not have anywhere near the coverage that male sports get. Many women are upset about this but the real reason is purely money. Mens sports at the moment just make a lot more money then womens sports so it makes sense that more events are televised.The two most viewed female sporting events in the world are the Olympics and the Kentucky Derby. Title 9 was big for female sports in college. Most big schools have football teams which account for many male athletic scholarships so this allows for many schools to have a wide variety of female sports. Title 9 made it so that schools had to have the same amount of athletic scholarships for male and female athletes.
