Exploring the Unequal Patterns in the Consumption of Women’s Sports
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to examine how the consumption of women in sports has changed drastically over time. Besides the different ways in which female athletes are watched, participation has also risen immensely. By looking at the effects of Title IX and how the media portrays women in sports, I was able to examine how these women are treated differently than their male counterparts. This paper primarily focuses on the reasons why female athletes are qualified and entitled to have the chance to be consumed equal to that of male athletes.
